This Years Theme and Focus

The Current Strategy Forum (CSF), which builds upon the research conducted through a series of workshops and conferences over the past 24-months, will consider issues related to the resurgence of "Great Power Competition" between peer and near-peer competitors around the globe. Sponsored by the Secretary of the Navy and the Chief of Naval Operations, this event will bring over 500 invited guests, faculty members and students to the college's Newport, Rhode Island campus to spend two days taking a detailed look at the maritime strategies of the United States, China and Russia. Implications on force structure and operating concepts will be identified and discussed.

About Current Strategy Forum

This year marks the 70th annual CSF at the U.S. Naval War College. The first CSF was held on May 9, 1949 under the title “Round Table Talks.” This initial event offered an opportunity for the nation’s public servants, scholars and senior military officers to join the college faculty and students to discuss the future strategy of the United States. Over the years, CSF has expanded to include a cross section of America’s civilian and military leadership to encourage a wide-ranging debate on national and international security.
