07 May 2024

The Joint Warfighting Concept challenges the US joint force to reassess how it approaches competition, deterrence, and conflict. This panel of experts and practitioners will review the purpose of the concept– namely how the US joint force will implement the US National Security Strategy. Additionally, the panel will delve into the specific role of SOF and the concept’s mandate to be innovative, flexible, and adaptable.
