National Security & Defense

Terrorism, cyberattacks, and unmanned aerial warfare increasingly dominate the picture of national security and conflict today. Nations must maintain a fragile balance between protecting citizen security and respecting citizen privacy.

Meanwhile, traditional warfare is not necessarily fading: cross-border conflict, civil war, nuclear threats, arms trafficking, and debates over the size of the U.S. military and its resources continue. How can nations balance national security with privacy concerns? What is the future of warfare and how do we prepare for it?
