The Whole Force Concept – The UK’s New Operational Stance

calendarclock - (GMT)

The whole force concept of regular military, myriad reservists and contractors is the force mix through which the UK will conduct its operations from now. But the concept is little understood and has been constantly questioned by Parliament. 

Through work sponsored by DynCorp International (UK), RUSI has spent almost a year researching the concept and will discuss its findings, which assess the force structures, governance, contracting options and issues to be addressed by both the UK government and military commanders. 

A drinks reception will be held from 1800-1845, followed by a discussion of the key findings by the one of the authors, Professor John Louth, Director of the Defence, Industries and Society Programme, from 1845-1930.
