From March 25 to 27, 2018, the Modern War Institute held its second annual Class of 2006 War Studies Conference. The conference allows distinguished representatives from the private sector, government, academia, think-tank community, and the joint military services to debate and discuss issues related to modern war and warfare. This year’s conference explored the issue of civil-military relations and how modern war and warfare are challenging previous interpretations of the “unequal dialogue.”
You can watch Panel 3, “A Hammer in Search of a Nail: A Discussion of the US Military’s Overextension,” here. Details about the panel are below the video, and you can see more videos from the conference and read the final conference report by visiting the conference page.
