The purpose of these conferences is to bring together international scholars and practitioners, military experts and students to examine legal issues impacting military operations of the day. Commencing with the inaugural conference in 2001, the Naval War Colleges internationally acclaimed International Law Studies Blue Book series has been devoted to the conference subjects.
