7th ISDP-AMS Joint Conference, Military Operations Overseas in Peacetime
This report summarizes the presentations and discussions from the 7th ISDP-AMS Joint Conference held in Stockholm on December 10-11, 2014. The theme of the conference was Military Operations Overseas in Peacetime with sessions focusing on counter-piracy operations, non-combatant evacuation operations, peacekeeping operations, and human and disaster relief operations. All of these constitute complex non-traditional security challenges which have risen in prominence over the last decade, and which necessitate that individual states as well as the international community at large develop the requisite tools, strategies, and institutions to deal with the threats that arise.
