October 8: Changing Battlefields, Technology, Business 

In the 21st century, battlefields, technology and business models are all in flux. How are changes in  one area affecting another? Can governments and large defence corporations keep up? And what innovative ways can be found to stay ahead of the curve? PS21 brings together an innovative panel to discuss these issues. The event will be on the record and livestreamed.

 

Ian Wallace (Moderator): former UK official. Senior fellow, New America

 

P.W. Singer: Senior Fellow,  New America. Author of Ghost Fleet, a novel imagining a Third World War between the US and China

This week at PS21

On Tuesday, PS21 hosted a joint event with Young Professionals in Foreign Policy (YPFP) in London looking at the UK Strategic Defence and Security Review. John Bassett, Gwenn Laine and Zachary Wolfraim joined the panel for an excellent discussion moderated by Tom Bruxner. On the same evening in Washington DC, Negar Razavi led a conversation with Rachel Hoff, Sarah Arkin, Rachel Rizzo and Elvina Nawaguna on what it takes to make it as a woman in DC.

We had some more great articles on the blog this week: Carrie Cuno discussed Egypt’s PR Problem, David Murrin wrote an article on polarisation and the rise of China and Edward Wanyonyi asked whether it was time for a foresight approach in the EU and Britain’s response to the immigration challenge.
