AFRICOM symposium at Maxwell next week
Until then, here's the basic rundown of what's going on:
The symposium will create a set of policy proposals for the sponsors by engaging military, industry and academic participants in active debate focusing on a broad spectrum of topics affecting AFRICOM and ways AFRICOM’s air component (17th Air Force) can contribute to meeting the security challenges of the 21st century.
The symposium is divided into four tracks, each with a specific focus: Track 1: Air Domain Safety and Security in Africa; Track 2: Utilizing Capability While Building Partnership Capacity; Track 3: Strengthening Relationships and Building a Security Cooperation (Phase Zero) Game Plan; Track 4: Future Look: Sustainable Security through Development and Conflict Mitigation. Each track is then sub-divided into a number of seminar style workshops that will develop the policy recommendations.
