Combined Joint Staff Exercise JOINT RESOLVE 2024 Has Started

From the 6th until the 24th of May, the Polish War Studies University (WSU), in cooperation with the Baltic Defence College (BALTDEFCOL) and the Finnish National Defence University (FNDU), will conduct the fourth edition of the Combined Joint Staff Exercise JOINT RESOLVE 2024 (JR24) in Warsaw.

JR24 will also mark the first time students from the National Defence University of Ukraine and the National University of Public Service in Hungary will participate in the exercise.

The aim of JR24 is to formulate a solution to complex operational problems by developing and executing a viable joint operational plan using the NATO operational planning process. In order to achieve the first element of the exercise, participants will cooperate in a number of simulated Joint Operational Planning Groups to demonstrate their understanding of the planning principles set out in NATO’s Comprehensive Operations Planning Directive. JR24 also provides the participants with an excellent opportunity to work together in a truly multinational environment, with officers possessing a wide variety of skills and education.

During this early phase of JR24, exercise participants are required to analyze a complex operational environment, which mirrors contemporary threats and challenges, to develop multiple Courses of Action, and to present a Mission Analysis Briefing and a Decision Briefing to the Commander.

The students are supported by highly experienced Senior Mentors, Subject Matter Experts, and faculty members from all three of the framework educational institutions, augmented by additional representatives from within the NATO Command and Force Structures and Centres of Excellence, with the exercise observed by external visitors.

This year's edition of the JOINT RESOLVE Exercise includes over 200 participants representing the following nations: Australia, Canada, Croatia, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Georgia, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Kosovo, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Montenegro, Norway, Poland, South Korea, Sweden, Ukraine, United Kingdom, and the United States, which underlines the importance and significance of this exercise as a vehicle for enhancing the education of the next generation of military leaders within NATO and among key partner nations.
