Warfare in the Age of Non-State Actors: Implications for the U.S. Army
Organizers: The United States Army Combat Studies Institute, Fort Leavenworth, Kansas.
The Combat Studies Institute will host a symposium entitled “Warfare in the Age of Non-State Actors: Implications for the U.S. Army.” The symposium will include a mixture of guest speakers, panel sessions, and general discussions.
This conference will explore the impact of conflict between nations and non-state combatants within a historical context. The conference will examine current issues, dilemmas, problems, trends, and practices associated with conflict between constituted nations and trans-national religious, ethnic, or criminal groups.
With this in mind, CSI is issuing a call for papers for the conference. It is planned to publish the proceedings of the conference in an edited volume within four months after the adjournment of the conference. Due to this strict deadline, individuals who are unable to deliver their papers at the time of the conference or who are unwilling to publish in this forum should not answer this call for papers.
Proposed Program: The symposium will be held at the Frontier Conference Center, Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, 11-13 September, 2007, and will include a mixture of guest speakers, panel sessions, and general discussions. CSI invites presentation and panel proposals for this symposium.
Projected topics include:
- Non State Actors and their impact on Strategic communications and Information Operations.
- Law of war and military doctrine dealing with Non-State Actors.
- Law of War and military doctrine dealing with Non-State Actors.
