RUSI Land Warfare Conference
RUSI Land Warfare Conference 2022
The Russian invasion of Ukraine has directly challenged the international order, leading to a reappraisal of notions of deterrence. Its repercussions have shone a fresh spotlight on the utility of land forces. Beyond Europe, the ‘Competitive Age’ emphasised in the UK’s 2021 Integrated Review is being realised, as the world copes with the aftermath of the lingering coronavirus pandemic, increasing pressure on the rules-based order in the Indo-Pacific, stabilisation operations in weak and failing states across the globe, and the continuing deadly spectre of international terrorism.
Simultaneously, the increasing pace of technological change will bestow advantages to those armies that transform to operate and fight in the digital age, but threatens to eclipse those who fail to do so at a speed of relevance. Armies must not only adapt to a new technological reality, but also ensure that they have the right people in order to equip future missions with the appropriate capabilities, understanding, skills and posture.
The Land Warfare Conference 2022 brings together allies and partners to discuss how armies are ensuring mission readiness while pursuing technological transformation.
