CCW is not simply a research centre. We seek to exchange knowledge, emit the findings of our research at the same time as we collect and analyse developments in the field.
While individual scholarship is at the heart of CCW, the dissemination of this scholarship both within the academic community and beyond is core to achieving the objectives of influencing policy and challenging thinking.
We have significant experience in producing and editing journal articles and major publications. Some 17 titles have now been published in the CCW series with Oxford University Press, including The Changing Character of War (2011). Books have been published by our CCW authors this academic year, including Robert Johnson The Great War and the Middle East and Sir John Kiszely’s highly topical Norway Campaign. In the summer of 2017 we will publish the next edition of the New Strategist Journal online, with a particular thematic emphasis on deterrence.
CCW influences policy at the highest level: The resonance of our research is clear as we are frequently called upon to act as a specialist advisors and to write policy briefs on security, defence and future developments for government and military institutions
The CCW Programme is connected to an extensive network of international partners, and has developed various links over ten years through exchanges, joint research, conferences and publications. CCW has established formal memoranda of understanding with a number of international institutions. These links and the nurturing of our relationships with academics at Oxford, nationally and around the world, are crucial to facilitate our programme of study days and conferences.
