The Norwich University John and Mary Frances Patton Peace & War Center is delighted to publish the third edition of the Journal of Peace and War Studies (JPWS), which addresses the theme of “Preparing Military Leaders to Effectively Resolve 21st Century Security Challenges.”

In this special edition, authors provide unique insights regarding how to educate future military leaders facing a variety of security challenges derived from growing great power competition, climate change, pandemics, rapid social and cultural changes, cutting-edge technological advancement such as virtual reality and artificial intelligence, and so on.  

This special issue was the outcome of the seventh International Symposium of Military Academies (ISOMA), held at Norwich University from October 4-8, 2021. For this international conference, military officers and scholars from more than 15 countries submitted 44 papers, and all those papers underwent careful peer review. As a result, 17 articles were selected for publication.

I want to give special thanks to two guest editors, Dr. David Ulbrich and Dr. Travis Morris, for helping recruit more than 100 peer reviewers all around the world. Much gratitude also goes to our peer reviewers for the hours they dedicated to this effort, and for their perceptive comments and suggestions. In addition, thanks very much for assistant editor Vina Hutchinson’s thorough copy edits and director of Norwich creative services, Joseph Yglesias, for a great journal design.

We hope you find the contents of the 2021 special issue regarding military education insightful, and we look forward to your thoughts and feedback. Thank you.
