Abstract:

As NATO undertakes initiatives that attempt to think ahead, beyond the conclusion of current operations, there is a need to better understand the implications of the future security environment to ensure future defence forces can establish a coherent strategy and force structure for what lies ahead. The NATO SAS-088 Specialist Meeting sought to establish a forum to review national and international perspectives, methods and supporting analytical techniques for long-range forecasting of the security environment, including lessons learned from operational experience. NATO SAS-088 brought together over 40 participants from 15 NATO and partner nations. The meeting featured three keynote presentations and 10 presentations of papers submitted by subject matter experts from across the Alliance, industry and academia. It also considered the presentation of the outputs of analysis and the ways it can be used to influence national defence policy. The Specialists Meeting helped create a better shared understanding of the techniques and strategies used for foresight within NATO and PfP nations.
