Four partner organizations — the Centre for International and Defence Policy at Queen’s University, the Canadian Army Doctrine and Training Centre, the Strategic Studies Institute of the U.S. Army War College, and NATO Defense College — have been working together for over a decade to bring together academics and practitioners from around the world to explore important security and defence themes. KCIS, through its annual conference and curated digital content, informs debate and advances knowledge in the field of international security and defence, providing in-depth analysis, with perspectives from universities, government, the armed forces, NGOs, and the private sector. 

The KCIS website provides periodic content curated by our partners and delivered by leading experts in the field. KCIS thus carries on with its proud tradition by offering a dynamic array of webinars, debates, podcasts, videos, and written briefs.
