Conflict Studies

The mission of the Conflict Studies Working Group (CSWG) is to establish, maintain, and enhance a regular, multilateral and open exchange of information, viewpoints and ideas between official military history institutions. This is done through annual thematic conferences that examine historical determinants of national military strategy, policy and objectives, as well as the historical context of current international and regional affairs. Here, military historians from different nations come together to share ideas concerning important events and to gain an appreciation of differences in national perspectives with respect to them. This open sharing of opinion and historical research assists the different nations in moving away from confrontation and toward lasting peace and stability.
