Event Details:

George P Shultz's project of Governance in an Emerging New World explores the challenges and opportunities for our democracy, our economy, and our security posed by emerging technologies and societal changes. This year-long research series aims to understand these changes and inform strategies that both address the challenges and take advantage of the opportunities afforded by these dramatic shifts. For more information and panelist essays, see

February 25, 2019, 4:00–5:15pm: Emerging Technology and America's National Security 

The United States finds itself in strategic competition with China and Russia at the same time as its traditional technological superiority faces emergent challenges.
