The Centre’s previous symposium in November 2014 addressed these issues in the context of how the air forces of the United Kingdom, France, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, and Denmark had transformed after the Cold War.

On 17 April 2015, this symposium will discuss how medium and small air forces such as those of Denmark, Australia, the UK, and the USMC can use new airpower capabilities to generate innovative concepts of operation that increase joint combat power to address regional and global security issues in the coming years.
