The Modern Deterrence Spring 2019 Conference will examine how the private sector, government and the armed forces can work together to deter hybrid warfare.
To deter modern warfare techniques and other emerging threats, Western countries need comprehensive defence strategies and plans. Given that hybrid warfare (also known as threshold or grey zone warfare) targets civil society as much as armed forces, defence and security postures cannot be a solely military responsibility. Comprehensive defence and deterrence, in other words, involve both the civilian, the political and the military parts of society.
In addressing the question of what civilian, political and military responsibilities in comprehensive defence against hybrid warfare should be, the conference will highlight existing solutions in different countries to establish best practice from global experience.
Our Founder & CEO David Atkinson will feature in Session Three: Crisis Response from 15:00-16:30 to discuss how countries, governments and civil society, ideally working together, can achieve the best possible deterrence by efficiently handling crisis response.
