Wargaming Network

The Wargaming Network is a research group within the School of Security Studies that aims to advance the theory and application of wargaming as a method of inquiry and as a method of learning and teaching. The Network builds on a rich history of King’s wargaming activities and serves as a hub for the growing community of King’s students and staff studying, researching and applying wargames and simulations. It seeks to engage and convene world-class wargaming scholars, practitioners and emerging talent.

In line with King’s 2029 Vision, the Wargaming Network seeks to: 

  • Educate to inspire and improve by advancing and democratising wargaming education.
  • Research to inform and innovate by developing wargaming as an academic discipline.
  • Serve to shape and transform by applying wargaming to generate and deliver big ideas in service to society.

The Wargaming Network engages in five types of activities:

  • Convenes public lectures and workshops.
  • Enables King’s faculty, staff and post-graduate student research.
  • Trains rapporteurs and analysts for analytical wargaming.
  • Supports the testing and execution of wargames for King’s faculty, staff and partners.
  • Organises networking events.
