|Development, Concepts and Doctrine Centre|
|Director||Major General Gerald I. Mitchell|
The Development, Concepts and Doctrine Centre (DCDC) is the United Kingdom (UK) Ministry of Defence’s (MOD’s) think tank.
Structure[edit | edit source]
The DCDC is headed by a two-star officer, located at Shrivenham and is under the UK's Joint Forces Command but reports to the Vice Chief of the Defence Staff (VCDS) who sets its priorities and outputs.
History[edit | edit source]
The DCDC (Originally called the Joint Doctrine and Concepts Centre (JDCC)) was established as a result of the 1998 Strategic Defence Review. The UK recognised that it needed to have a clearer long-term vision of the way in which it expected it forces and their methods of operation to develop.
Outputs[edit | edit source]
DCDC produces many publications relating to the future global environment. It also has a Doctrine Team responsible for writing and maintaining a range of joint operational level UK and NATO doctrine publications, and Strategy, Analysis and Research and Leegal Teams.
