About This Event

We live in times of great uncertainty and instability. Russia’s aggression against Ukraine is violating core principles of the global order, while China’s pursuit of dominance in the Indo-Pacific is destabilizing the entire region. Meanwhile, the rapid advance of artificial intelligence is outpacing the ability of states to govern these new technologies. Together, these challenges pose an especially grave threat to world order and global stability. What can the United States and its partners around the world do to address these threats and maintain the rules-based international order? Join the Council for a discussion of how geopolitical and technological forces are reshaping our world and how the US and its allies can navigate these challenges together.
