The course, which began in 2004, has provided bi-annual Iraqi Key Leader Training in order to assist Iraqi Security Forces in the development of sustainable security institutions and processes in order to establish, lead and maintain security in Iraq.
“This course has helped Iraqi Key Leaders operate more jointly and has given them an inspirational insight into international relations,” said Norwegian Army Brigadier General Gunnar E. Gustavsen, IKLT Director and Special Advisor to JWC’s Commander. “We must remember that Iraq has been isolated from the outside world for many years. Here, we teach an extremely relevant multi-disciplinary training programme with top-notch security specialists from both within and outside NATO providing first-hand knowledge in the operational context and leadership disciplines.”
As directed by Supreme Allied Commander Transformation (SACT), Joint Warfare Centre promotes and conducts NATO’s joint and combined experimentation, analysis and doctrine development to maximise transformational synergy and to improve NATO’s capabilities and interoperability.
