The Oxford Research Group’s Remote Warfare Programme held a two day conference from 28 February to 1 March entitled ‘Conceptualising Remote Warfare: The Past, Present and Future’. The conference brought together a wide range of experts from the military, academia, civil society and parliament and explored the many aspects of remote warfare. The event was sponsored by the British International Studies Association (BISA). 

The diverse range of speakers provided both theoretical examinations, as well as practical and policy relevant discussions about how nations like the UK engage in military operations abroad.

Professor Sir Hew Strachan also delivered an enlightening keynote speech on the relationship between strategy and democracy. Recordings of the panels will be published on the ORG website and many of debates and discussions will be developed into, first, a briefing and, later, a book which will be published on E-International Relations.
