The 22nd Annual NDIA SOLIC Special OperationsLow Intensity Conflict Symposium and Exhibition will examine the operational constructs required to implement a comprehensive, whole-of-government approach to national security by considering the relationships and interaction of defense, diplomacy, and development in light of current and future engagements. The symposium asserts that accomplishing national security objectives increasingly requires multidimensional special operations forces capable of fusing defense, diplomacy, and development activities. Further, the present complex environments demand integration of these components to flow from policy through operations to industry to meet the needs of the defense and interagency actors addressing the challenges of our times. Speakers will discuss how to translate policy into the right balance and mix of defense, diplomacy, development, and ultimately, requirements.
