Annual Doctrinal Highlight
19 - 29 January 2016
From 19 to 29 January 2016 the Maritime Operations Working Group (MAROPSWG), took place in Istanbul, Turkey. The COE CSW participated in this primary annual meeting for maritime doctrine development in NATO with four Staff Officers attending the different syndicates and subpanels.
Our contributions with presentations, liaison reports, change proposals and by provision of expertise in many discussions have been well received by the participants. At the end of this very successful and productive meeting with more than 130 maritime experts from 17 NATO nations as well as representatives from various NATO commands and entities, tangible results were achieved in improving numerous NATO maritime publications. Furthermore, a lot of new tasks derived for COE CSW. Thus we will continue to contribute to the development of NATO doctrines and offer our specific expertise also in future MAROPSWG meetings.
