A Perspective on the Nature of Future Conflict

15 May 2009 - 1:30pm to 2:30pm

Chatham House, London


General Sir Richard Dannatt, Chief of the General Staff, British Army
Chair: Dr Robin Niblett, Director, Chatham House



In strategic and inclusive terms the speaker will give a view of future conflict, dominated by the concept of hybrid operations. He will explain the implications of this for the land environment in particular, showing how the campaigns in Iraq and Afghanistan have acted as a catalyst for 'transformation in contact' and describe how the Army could continue to evolve so that it can better contribute to defence and security in the future.

The question and answer session in this meeting was off the record.
