 About the Workshop
The “Information Operations and Winning the Peace” workshop, held at the U.S. ArmyWar College (USAWC), Carlisle Barracks, Pennsylvania, was a collaboration between theWar College’s Center for Strategic Leadership (CSL) and the Advanced Network ResearchGroup, University of Cambridge (UK). It brought together, over a three-day period (29 November to 1 December), an audience of some 60 leaders and practitioners representing themilitary, national security, intelligence and interagency communities, as well as academia.It included representatives from the U.S., UK and Canada. The venue was CSL’s Collins
Hall and the workshop structure consisted of introductory expert briengs followed bysmall group discussions. Three case studies drawn from the Israeli-Palestinian conict
served as the “driver” for small group work. These case studies examined aspects of the
second Intifada phase of that conict (circa 2002) and looked at the realities and challenges
of managing “information effects” in a counterinsurgency at the tactical, operational andstrategic levels. The case studies provided a jumping off point for discussion of the issuesand challenges facing U.S. and coalition militaries in adapting to the complexities of the
“long war.” The workshop was an unclassied event, and the Israeli-Palestinian case studies
allowed participants to engage issues without prejudice or risk to on-going operations.
