Challenges for the 21st Century

Admiral the Lord Boyce GCB OBE

A lecture on the challenges of the 21st Century with respect to the conduct of UK military operations.  In order to express these challenges clearly, it is important to understand the wide scope of operations that we may anticipate being committed to in the future and how we will use our Armed Forces.  Therefore the overarching theme of this presentation will be the demands of what have become known as "full spectrum" effects-based operations - operations that encompass tasks from destruction to stabilisation.
