[ONLINE] - Future Security Forum 2021: On-Demand

20x20: Redefining National Security for 2040

We're excited to keep the conversation going, with additional on-demand Future Security Forum programming to watch at your convenience. Join expert discussions about the threat of disinformation, China's defense technology, and the cost of "forever wars" on civilians by clicking the button below.

The Forum is the premier annual event of New America and Arizona State University’s Future Security project—a research, education, and policy partnership that develops new paradigms for understanding and addressing new and emerging global challenges. The Forum brings together thought leaders from government, academia, the military, and the media to reflect on the legacy of the United States’ “longest wars,” discuss the impact of the past two decades of U.S. policy, and chart national and international security trends.

Co-sponsors for the 2021 Future Security Forum are Joint Special Operations University and the Strategic Studies Institute of the U.S. Army War College.
