The IWHTWG focuses on producing irregular warfare (IW) analysis, policies, and strategies in partner countries while offering guidance on developing resilience and comprehensive defense against irregular warfare threats in collaboration with in-resident IW courses taught at the GCMC. As irregular warfare threats are dynamic and complex, the IWHTWG program relies on experts from around the globe to comprehensively address contemporary trends through a combination of multidisciplinary working groups and whole-of-society engagements.


IWHTWG supports an irregular (US) or hybrid warfare strategy (NATO) focusing on civil preparedness, deterrence, and defense by strengthening alliance members' and partners' resilience. By serving as a trusted thought leader and forum, the IWHTWG constructs a framework that integrates education, research, best practices, mobile training, and policy recommendations to strengthen resilience and civil preparedness among NATO Allies and Partner Nations in the face of irregular warfare/hybrid threats. By connecting subject matter expertise, practitioner experience, and academic research through multinational defense, security sector, and civilian cooperation initiatives, the IWHTWG contributes to a comprehensive defense approach that aligns with the overarching goals and purposes of NATO, NATO PfP, and the NATO PfP Consortium to build resilience against irregular warfare/hybrid threats.
