Threat Perception & International Cooperation

With renewed cooperation and a return to great power competition, the end of the decades-long occupation of Afghanistan, and the democratization and rapid development of technology, the time is ripe to turn our eyes to new domains and emerging threats to national security. Events on 9/11 set the world’s security agenda for the following two decades. As we open a new era, what are the challenges that will define the next 20 years and how can international partnerships confront them?

The Konrad Adenauer Stiftung Foundation and the National Security Policy Center at the Frank Batten School of Leadership and Public Policy will host a series of public conversations examining the future of security cooperation in an era of transformational technological change on October 5th and 6th, 2021.

The purpose of these discussions is to examine and reconsider today’s priorities to tackle tomorrow’s security challenges. The event will include meetings among security experts including former government officials, non-governmental experts, and scholars.
