HC Deb 09 March 1998 vol 308 c48W
Mr. Key

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what has been the United Kingdom's contribution to the NATO Centre for Lessons Learned in Bosnia. [32385]

Mr. George Robertson

[holding answer 4 March 1998]: There is no specific NATO centre for the analysis of lessons learned from Bosnia. Studies have been undertaken by NATO at various levels to capture the politico-military and military lessons from the Implementation Force (IFOR) deployment and transition to the Stabilisation Force (SFOR). These studies have included work by NATO HQ in Brussels, by a temporary analysis team at the NATO HQ at Northwood, by the Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe (SHAPE) and by the Allied Command Europe (ACE) Rapid Reaction Corps (ARRC) HQ. The United Kingdom has contributed to these either directly or through the contribution of UK personnel in NATO appointments.
