NESA Center Professors Richard Wiersema, Jeffrey Payne, and David Des Roches spoke on NESA Professional Military Education (PME), NESA Maritime Programs, and NESA Bilateral Programs on issues such as drones and developments in warfare. NESA has active and robust programs to help regional military education institutions (staff colleges and war colleges) develop capacity through wargaming, faculty development, and curriculum development. Although not a PME institution, NESA has an interest in helping advocate for PME schools as the NESA Center international community has a high demand for PME institutions around the world for students and strategic leadership. At the end of the program, NESA Center Academic Dean Dr. Roger Kangas spoke on academic cooperation and considerations.
