NEWPORT, R.I. -- A U.S. Naval War College (NWC) conference entitled "Learning from Air Operations in Libya: Mandates, Operations, and Outcomes" brought international practitioners and analysts together to develop an integrated assessment of Operation Odyssey Dawn and Operation Unified Protector, on June 20-21.

The goal of the two-day event was to understand how the political guidance for “the use of all necessary measures to protect civilians and civilian populated areas under threat of attack” was translated into military plans, operations, and endstates and to analyze the key issues that arose during military operations.

Participants included senior military and political leaders, military officials involved at the operational and tactical level, and the U.S. and international evaluation and learning communities.

The conference was hosted by the Minerva Chair and cosponsored by the Office of the Secretary of Defense and the National Defense University.

NWC expresses its grateful appreciation for the support of the Mass Atrocity Response Operations (MARO) project at the Harvard Kennedy School in providing financial support to this conference.
