The Fusion Doctrine was established in the Government’s National Security Capability Review, published in March 2018. It created a more accountable system to support collective Cabinet decision-making, with the introduction of senior responsible owners to deliver each of the National Security Council’s (NSC) priorities. Each senior responsible owner is accountable to the NSC for the development of options and the implementation of the Government’s strategy. The Fusion Doctrine is not dependent on the holder of any post at a particular point in time.
