Communication is the academic discipline of the 21st century. Today more than ever, it is the medium through which power is exercised. It sustains alliances, facilitates negotiations and secures support for both democrats and dictators. It can create and counter forms of violent extremism.

The King’s Centre for Strategic Communications (KCSC) aims to be the leading global centre of expertise on strategic communications. Led by internationally renowned experts from the Department of War Studies and partners from the policy and practitioner communities, it provides practical solutions to contemporary communication challenges rooted in cutting-edge academic research. The Centre provides intellectual rigour and clarity of thinking to enhance understanding of an increasingly dynamic information environment.
