A report from RUSI's Strategic Command Conference, which this year focused on integration within the military, across government, and with allies and partners.

RUSI’s Strategic Command Conference took place on 26 May 2021 at the IET, London. It followed publication of the Ministry of Defence’s Integrated Operating Concept and Defence Command Paper, and the UK government’s Integrated Review. Participants highlighted integration as an important organising principle for the UK’s armed forces and Strategic Command’s central role in its delivery.

The conference examined three dimensions of ‘integration’: multi-domain integration within the military instrument; integration across government; and integration with allies and partners. Integration with industry was addressed in a separate industry day.
