THE BRAZILIAN ARMED FORCES’ PERFORMANCE IN NONTRADITIONAL OPERATIONS
Since the end of the Cold War, there has been an increase in the Armed Forces' participation in non-war operations, including humanitarian emergencies, environmental disasters and the assurance of public order. Such participation has impacted doctrinal definitions and increased interaction between civil and military agencies. Faced with this phenomenon, this article aims to identify how the Armed Forces in Brazil have acted in terms of participation in non-traditional operations in the domestic space. To this end, three operations were selected, namely, Operation Acolhida, Operation Verde Brasil and Operation COVID-19. By comparing the three cases analysed, it was observed that more significant interaction between different agencies and communication channels with civil society contributed to greater effectiveness and reputation of operations.
