Workshop: Veteran Dialogue and the Future of War, Pembroke College, 13 & 14 June 2017

The Changing Character of War (CCW) programme, Pembroke College Oxford, is hosting a two day workshop on the 13th and 14th of June on the themes of veteran civilian dialogue and the future of warfare.

Location: Harold Lee Room, Pembroke College, Oxford OX1 1DW

This event is a two-day, panel-based workshop, devoted to the two themes of veteran/civilian dialogue and the future of warfare. The purpose of this workshop is to engage a broad audience of civilians, military personnel, academics and non-academics alike and encourage them to think more deeply about their moral relationship to these important and timely themes. The veteran dialogue portion of the workshop will focus on such broad themes as: soldier recruitment and the making of soldiers, the ethical experience of war, what we think society owes to veterans, veteran healthcare and compensation, moral injury, PTSD, spouse and family issues, and civil-military relations. The future of war portion of the workshop will focus on such broad themes as: emerging technologies such as fully autonomous weapons, soldier enhancement, surveillance and meta-data; counter-terrorism and institutional reform, the ‘individualization’ of war, war and poverty, and emerging conceptual frameworks for military tactics and strategy.
