Fox and Cunliffe act currently as the international secretariat for the organisation. The Blue Shield currently has 22 national committees and six under development, all of which work within the context set by the UN and UNESCO.
Through a variety of activities, including publications, advice, production of training materials, actual training, and conferences the Newcastle team work with politicians, civil servants, the military, and heritage community to better prepare for CPP. This is done at both a national (e.g. a 2013 article by Stone prompted the British Army to set-up a new CPP Unit that will become fully operational in 2020/21) and supra-national level (e.g. with NATO). Team members have recently been involved in adding CPP issues in planning and delivering NATO and US Air Force exercises.
