Engagement Between Peace and War: How Soldiers and Military Institutions Adapt


June 13-15, 2016
Marriott Residence Inn
Kingston, Ontario, Canada
Open to the General Public

Today, military operations are conducted across a broad spectrum of conflict. How do we prepare our armed forces to achieve policy objectives in

the ambiguous space between peace and war? What cultural awareness and human interactive skills would enhance the military's ability to conduct operations at the lower end of the spectrum of conflict? What are the defence policy, training and doctrinal implications?

The 2016 edition of the Kingston Conference on International Security will examine how soldiers and military organizations adapt to rapidly changing conflict dynamics, but also, how they play a part in managing peace. In this environment, land forces continue to play a highly-relevant role through engagement in the space between peace and war. Special attention will be focused on how to address rivals who challenge Canada, the United States and their allies in the "gray zone" and who employ tactics that are associated with "hybrid warfare". Topics will include current security assessments, soldier competencies, professional military education, institutional adaptation and capabilities, as well as policy implications.
