Military and Defence Ecosystem Programme

This programme examines the context, structures, processes and people that deliver defence outputs, since success ultimately depends on how well they can manage the complexity with which they are faced.

Taking an institutional view on how the armed forces and wider defence ecosystem work, this programme considers the pressures on defence institutions, including the need to respond to climate change; how defence institutions work; and the processes that attract, develop and retain military personnel.

It also examines how defence ministries engage with other organisations in the defence and security ecosystem, wider government and industry.
