Twenty-First Century Manoeuvre
19-20 June 2018
Church House Conference Centre, SW1P 3NZ
Held annually on behalf of the Chief of the General Staff, this conference reflected on the breadth of challenges confronting today’s land forces in a global security environment characterised by constant competition and unpredictability.
Regardless of those changes in the character of conflict, land-based forces will continue to act within the framework of manoeuvre – seeking always a position of advantage over adversaries.
- How has manoeuvre evolved through history? Is it now more than three dimensional?
- What doctrine, capabilities and structures will be needed to out-manoeuvre adversaries?
- How will Land capabilities contribute to successful outcomes at the operational and strategic levels?
- International Chiefs Panel: How will allies manoeuvre beyond 2025?
- What are the human factors that bear on 21st Century manoeuvre?
- How should armies train for 21st Century manoeuvre?
- Closing Keynote: Chief of the General Staff
