Has the public perception of the countries that deploy troops changed significantly towards expectations of ethical and moral conduct of their armed forces in such operations? How have operations in a theatre marked by targeted killings, drone strikes, counter-insurgency, and “green on blue” attacks affected the armies that have fought in these wars? What impact have these operations had on our understanding of just war?
Join KCIS 2013 as it explores the challenges that face Western armed forces in the aftermath of a decade of war. Bringing together leading researchers and representatives from the CF and Allied military forces, government, international institutions and universities, KCIS 2013 will focus on the challenges of embedding military professionalism and training that are grounded in an ethical and moral approach to operations, and the equally difficult task of ensuring the well-being of the armed forces, particularly in an era of austerity.
