The IWRWG focuses on developing irregular warfare (IW) policies and strategies in Partner countries while offering guidance on resilience to irregular warfare threats in collaboration with in-resident IW courses taught at the GCMC. As irregular warfare threats are dynamic, the IWRWG program relies on experts from around the globe to address contemporary trends through a combination of targeted exercises and military-to-military engagements.


IWRWG 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 leader and forum, the IWRWG constructs a framework that integrates education, exercises, 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 IWRWG 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 for responding to and recovering from irregular warfare/hybrid threats.
