The Norwegian Institute of International Affairs (NUPI) and the Norwegian Defence University College have the pleasure of inviting you to the 15th Military Power Seminar:

Afghanistan Experiences - Lessons Learned or Lessons Lost?

At a critical moment in Afghanistan, this year’s Military Power Seminar aims to bring together a broad range of contributors and participants to discuss experiences from Afghanistan and their impact. Is the Afghanistan experience just another speed bump with no major influence for the future of Alliance operations? Or has ISAF altered NATO force planning and capability development? Are we seeing adjusted perspectives in the Alliance and its member states? Has the involvement in Afghanistan led to significant changes in Norwegian security and defence policy? What have the Norwegian Armed Forces learnt and which lessons are most relevant? What are possible implications of these lessons for future engagements abroad and the structure and tasks of the Armed Forces at home? These are some of the questions that will be addressed at the Military Power Seminar 2013.

Due to great interest, this arrangement is fully booked and closed for sign-up. If you wish to be put on the waiting list, please send an e-mail to
