CONFERENCE: Warfare in the Age of Non-State Actors Print
Warfare in the Age of Non-State Actors: Implications for the U.S. Army

11-13 September, 2007
Fort Leavenworth Frontier Conference Center Fort Leavenworth, Kansas

Organizers: The United States Army Combat Studies Institute, Fort Leavenworth, Kansas. 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.

Proposed Program: CSI will issue a Call for Papers in October 2006. While the symposium program is tentative and flexible, CSI expects it to include the following panels and topics:

- Non-State Actors and their impact on strategic communications and Information Operations.

- Law of War and Military Doctrine dealing with Non-State Actors.

- The military's role in conflict termination and securing the political end state especially if one or more combatants is a Non-State Actor (e.g. Hezbollah, IRA, FARC, FMLN, al Qaeda).

- The armed forces as part of the interagency process.

- Military operations with International Government Organizations and Non-Governmental Organizations.

- Tactics of militaries and rogue organizations or Non-State Actors on the battlefield.

- The military and cultural awareness.

- The role of technology in empowering and combating Non-State Actors.

- Impact of Non-State Actors on Global economics and Non-State Actors' financing.
