Dr Steven Paget

Director of Academic Support Services (International Security)

Steven Paget


I am a Senior Lecturer in the Faculty of Business and Law at RAF College, Cranwell. Prior to joining the University of Portsmouth, I was a Lecturer in Strategy and Operations at the New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF) Command and Staff College and an NZDF Teaching Fellow at the Centre for Defence and Security Studies, Massey University. I have also taught at the Australian National University and the University of Canberra.

Research Interests

I specialise in the conduct of multinational operations since the Second World War and I have a particular interest in the development of interoperability. The majority of my work has focussed on naval operations, but I have an active interest in air and land operations. I am also interested in the development of professional military education - especially internationalisation.

I have recently completed a book on the conduct of Royal Navy, Royal Australian Navy and United States Navy operations since the Second World War. I am currently conducting work on a complementary volume on air operations.
