provide a space for discourse among various levels of SOF
JSOU Future of SOF Forums are a sequence of
quarterly-running learning experience forums meant to explore themes, topics,
and questions that are important to the current and future profession of
special operations and the SOF Enterprise. We pose questions and pursue
discourse among divergent perspectives to frame and understand problems, before
looking for solutions.
The SOF Identity Forums explore
matters ranging from the promise and potential perils of emergent and
disruptive technology, ethical implications, and diversity and inclusion,
exploring SOF - as a profession - as it has been, is now, and will be tomorrow,
considering evolving global challenges, national interests and operational
The SOF in Strategic Competition Forums focus on matters relating to use and utility of special operations forces, exploring our role in a competitive global environment with highly complex, complicated, intersectional, and 'compound security' challenges. We address questions regarding the United States' roles and interests in the context of our National Security Strategy and, more specifically, SOF's responsibilities and potential contributions. Each event in the SOF in Strategic Competition Series focuses on a unique region and various related problem-sets.
Together, these quarterly forums drive our research initiatives, produce fresh research topics and questions that refresh and contemporize SOF teaching and learning curricula, all while promoting discourse and critical and creative thinking about complex issues in SOF. These Future of SOF Forums strengthen the network of thinking and doing SOF professionals for our nation.
