A report from the inaugural conference for the UK’s new Strategic Command, hosted by RUSI.

On 18 February 2020, RUSI hosted the inaugural conference for the UK’s new Strategic Command. Strategic Command had been formed in December 2019 from Joint Forces Command, which itself had only been created in 2011 as a result of the previous year’s Strategic Defence and Security Review. This conference, therefore, sought to introduce Strategic Command to the public, to explore what it is and why it is needed, before considering three aspects of its mission: strategic integration; countering hybrid activity; and seeking opportunities in technological disruption.
