Missile Defence Conference 2018

19 March 2018, 9:00 to 20 March 2018, 17:00
RUSI Whitehall
A major highlight in the missile defence calendar, the RUSI Missile Defence Conference will contribute to the evolution of policy with a stimulating discussion of missile defence issues between senior policymakers and practitioners. It is an element of the Institute’s Martial Power Programme.

The 18th annual Conference in this series is very timely. It will address the North Korean nuclear threat and how it will have evolved and East Asian missile defence issues more widely.  It will consider: the United States’ policy under the present Administration and the outcome of the Ballistic Missile Defense Review and Nuclear Posture Review;  the evolution of the European Phased Adaptive Approach  (EPAA); the NATO Integrated Air and Missile Defence System (NIAMD); challenges imposed by Russian behaviour and in the Middle East; and progress in the development of British missile defence capabilities after the  United Kingdom’s 2015 Strategic Defence and Security Review (SDSR) and the ongoing National Security Capability Review. Multinational cooperation and most importantly coordination and integration of capabilities will be a capstone theme in particular integration of air and missile defence capabilities.

It is expected that insights from the Conference will be published and some preliminary papers will be circulated.

If your organisation is interested in contributing to this Conference, please contact Michael Codner, Senior Research Fellow in Military Sciences at michaelc@rusi.org.
