Makers of foreign and defense policy frequently attempt to draw on historical knowledge to gain perspective on contemporary national security issues. Meanwhile, historians and other scholars frequently comment on present-day decision-making problems and sometimes aspire to influence policy debates. Yet policymakers and scholars generally occupy separate intellectual and institutional universes. Especially in recent years, they have had little to say to one another. The result, arguably, has been the impoverishment of both communities.

Under the auspices of the Minister of Defence of the Republic of Turkey the International Commission of Military History (ICMH) will hold its annual conference in Istanbul, Turkey, from 3-11 September 2016.
Like in previous years, the Educational Committee of the International Commission of Military History invites young PhD. students to take part in a workshop for young scholars who are still working on or have just finished their PhD thesis on a topic which relates to the issue of „preparations for war“.
Over the past century, paintings of the Great War have played an important role in shaping and expressing public memory of the conflict. Indeed, many canvases—think, for example, of the Panthéon de la Guerre or John Singer Sargent’s iconic Gassed—have enjoyed just as much cultural prominence as photographs or works of cinema. The Great War represents a “last hurrah” for painting as a significant form of cultural war remembrance.
We are two doctoral candidates seeking a third participant for a proposed panel on internationalism, warfare, popular politics, and humanitarianism in Britain between the world wars, for the 2016 NACBS session in Washington, D.C.
The Palgrave Handbook of Global Counterterrorism Policy will be published in 2016 (currently under contract).
We're currently looking for a few more chapter spots to be filled. The following are essential for the volume:
(2) Sauid Arabia
(1) Chapter dealing with Middle East CT policy in general (sections can include different countries, particularly those mentioned above).
