Naval Theory & Maritime Strategy
Naval theory and maritime strategy research and education is at the core of the Laughton Unit and shapes and influences our researchers. The Laughton unit provides the scholarly and intellectual forum and environment to investigate, explore and analyses the fundamental theory and ideas behind sea/naval power and maritime strategy. The founding fathers of this area and naval history, Prof Laughton and Sir Julian Corbett provide the ideal platform and perspective to contemplate naval history and future strategy, policy and tactics. The unit is ideally and uniquely placed both as guardians of the processes set by Laughton and Corbett, independent of factors that may deter from developing sound theory that is capable of application, while enhancing our understanding through discussing this repository of wisdom that resides in naval history and theory.
