To address changing global problems and strengthen collaborations in fending off unconventional threats, the U.S. Army is looking into the creation of an irregular warfare group.
The U.S. Army John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center and School at Fort Bragg recently held a three-day event called the Irregular Warfare Forum, focusing on the challenges America faces in an evolving global environment. The forum, co-hosted by the Special Warfare Center and School and the National Defense University’s College of International Security Affairs, emphasized the importance of partnerships and understanding irregular warfare. The Army is in the early stages of developing an irregular warfare manual and exploring the establishment of an irregular warfare organization to provide broader education and training opportunities. The College of International Security Affairs plays a significant role in this plan, offering collaboration with operational forces. Irregular warfare, which targets opponents’ credibility and influence, relies on information and influence as crucial components. With ongoing global conflicts, the need for study and collaboration among the military, educators, partners, and allies is more vital than ever.
