This edition of The Explorer has been produced as a special edition in time for the JALLCs 15'th anniversary. Along with the usual news on the JALLC's activities, you will find academic and personal articles written by the JALLC's staff on a number of topics including NATO's approach to Projecting Stability and how sport breaks down barriers between people from different nationalities.
This edition of The Explorer also show cases the JALLC's new shield, explaining the meaning of the symbols used and how it was developed.
This edition of the Explorer takes a closer look at some of the important work the JALLC and its partners have been engaged in over the last few months. A key achievement has been the successful 2016 NATO Lessons Learned Conference (NLLC), which took place here in Lisbon on 29 and 30 November 2016. Elsewhere, this edition highlights a number of new Joint Analysis products recently published by the JALLC. One of these is the “NATO Force Structure Joint Task Force Headquarters Handbook,”.
One of our main challenges for 2017 will be our contribution to the NATO Lessons Learned Optimization Action Plan which aims to improve NATO's Lessons Learned Process, making it more efficient and effective. In this respect, a key focus area for the JALLC will be to ensure that the NATO Lessons Learned Portal becomes NATO's single Lessons management tool.
The next edition of the Explorer will be release during the month of September, commemorating the 15th Anniversary of the JALLC, and it will include a wide range of articles produced by the JALLC staff members
This second edition of the new look Explorer celebrates the arrival of the JALLC's new Commander, Brigadier General Mario Barreto (Portuguese Air Force) with a special two page photo-feature article on the assumption of command ceremony that took place on 19 August. We also feature a visit to the JALLC by Deputy Supreme Allied Commander Transformation and an interview with Mr Clovis Autin who joined the JALLC earlier this year as a (civilian) operational research analyst.
