Raphael Perl, executive director of the Partnership for Peace Consortium, shared his perspectives on asymmetric warfare at the conference, “Asymmetric Warfare, Conflict of the Past, the Present and the Future.” The conference was held at Stefania Palace in Budapest, Hungary on November 9-10, 2016 and was sponsored by the Hungarian Minister of Defense.
According to Perl, "a common failure in much of today’s mainstream thinking is the belief that asymmetric warfare can be stopped by conventional warfare." While conventional warfare forces must still be considered, governments must develop strategies that mitigate the threats that now come from so many unexpected sources.
