About the Event
Many believe the future operating environment for our armed forces will not be limited by lines on maps or by geography. These challenges will be complex, test our approach and target our most vulnerable areas. We will likely be confronted by state and non-state actors who will employ brinkmanship, malign activity below the threshold of armed conflict, terrorism, proxies, coercion and the deliberate use of economic tools to undermine our economic and security interests. Please do join us as we consider what the British Armed Forces will be like in 2030.
