Warfare in the Information Age

21 September 2016, 10:00 to 17:30
RUSI Whitehall
This conference will explore the nature of the Information Age and its implications for conflict and the conduct of warfare,

Whilst commanding the UK’s Joint Forces Command, General Sir Richard Barrons spoke regularly and passionately about his concern that the UK and NATO was failing to adequately prepare for the nature of warfare in the Information Age. In particular he highlighted that both capability and thinking still reflected the context of the Industrial Age and that there was a need for a significant shift to counter those adversaries who had more successfully grasped the implications..

The conference aims to identify how Western militaries, in particular, need to change and adapt to meet these new challenges.

The programme will explore the following themes and topics:

  • The contemporary context of the Information Age and conflict
  • How is warfare changing in thinking and capability?
  • Applied Information Age warfare
  • The implications for NATO and Member States

A range of both academics and practitioners are planned to participate with the outputs being captured in a Conference paper.
