CENJOWS was raised at the initiative of Ministry of Defence on 24 Aug 2007 and is registered under ‘The Societies Registration Act 1860’. The centre has been set up to:
- Rise above sectoral and departmental legacies, and examine joint warfare and synergy issues in their entirety.
- Provide the much needed interface between various stakeholders, viz the government, public and private sector, academia, NGOs and civil society.
- Initiate debates and discussions in an independent and unbiased milieu for emergence of best possible alternative.
