SDL 2010: ‘Future Conflict and Learning’ and ‘The Future for Police Training’

The focus will be on the future at Security and Defence Learning 2010, the sixth international conference on technology-assisted learning for security, defence and emergency services.

Leading experts from the worlds of security, defence and emergency services will ask participants to consider some fundamental questions about the nature of modern security and the training necessary to ensure it.

How will conflicts in the future affect learning? What is the nature of modern conflict and how should we train for it? What should be the role of learning in conflict prevention, peace-building and post-conflict reconstruction? How will training for police and emergency services evolve in the future?

Chris Donnelly, CMG, Director of the Institute of Statecraft and Governance and former special adviser to the Secretary General of NATO, will consider these vital questions when he presents a paper on ‘Future Conflict Learning’. Captain Dr Piotr Gawliczek, Head of Innovation at the National Defence University, Warsaw, will present a review of Poland’s recent experience of innovative training for security and emergency services and outline priorities for the future.

Developments in training for police and emergency services will also be a major theme in a separate session at the conference. How will training for police and emergency services evolve? What are the priorities? What will be the effect of economic recession on training budgets? Dale Sheehan, Director of Training at Interpol, will discuss the organisation’s recent experience of innovative training programmes in the fight against crime and examine the training needs of the future.

Other keynote speakers at the conference will include senior figures from the worlds of security, defence, intelligence and emergency services, as well as industry leaders and academics.

Dr Harold Elletson, Chairman of the New Security Foundation, which hosts the annual conference, said: “Security and Defence Learning has established a position as a major event for key people in the world of security learning and training. They enjoy the intimate atmosphere of the event and the opportunity to meet new people and network with important contacts, as well as the chance to take part in our discussions about new security learning issues.”

Security & Defence Learning will be accompanied by a roundtable discussion with the regional government of Brandenburg and the New Security Foundation dinner, both of which provide enjoyable and stimulating networking opportunities.  There will also be an exhibition at the conference, providing exhibitors with a platform to present their innovative learning and training solutions.
