Arithmetical Bedlam Conundrum

Logic puzzles require you to think. You will have to be logical in your reasoning.

You have the following equations:

a + c = a
b - c = c
c / b = c
a * a = b

You also know that a, b, c have the values 0, 1 and 2, but not necessarily in that order.

But to make matters more complicated the symbols + - * / have been mixed up: all you know is that each represents a different arithmetical operation (addition, subtraction, multiplication or division).

Can you work out the values of a, b and c, and what each of the symbols actually mean?
