Marine Corps Special Operations Command will soon release a new operating concept — known as MARSOC 2030 — that will look at how “Raiders” will fight twelve years into the future, said the organization’s commander March 1.

“Among the large set of trends that we see during conflict … [is] the convergence of two broad themes — regional competition and instability,” said Maj. Gen. Carl E. Mundy III. “These will likely be the factors that … [policymakers use] to shape the employment” of special operations forces.

Explosive population growth in areas with traditionally poor governance and limited resources will foment instability across entire regions, including urban areas, he noted during a panel discussion at the National Defense Industrial Association’s Special Operations/Low Intensity Conflict Symposium and Exhibition which was held in Arlington, Virginia.

Megacities will become even more “dense, disordered knots of activity and exert outsized influence” over the international security environment, he added.
