Creating a security architecture for the 21st century
The international community is facing a number of serious strategic challenges. Wars in Europe and the Middle East originating from long-standing geopolitical tensions, rising pressure in the Asia-Pacific region, and resource scarcity driving further instability across many parts of the world.
As well as re-evaluating traditional aspects of modern warfare – like land, sea and air defences – the defence ecosystem is confronting the growing risks of cyber and artificial intelligence (AI) to critical infrastructure, as well as the opportunities presented by these new technologies. 2024 presents a truly uncertain and unstable environment for security policymakers, beset with acute challenges. But it also creates opportunities for alliances and institutions to be strengthened and reformed to ensure that they are fit for purpose.
The 2024 conference will explore the implications of the changing global security order, as well as the nature of conflict and the potential avenues for enhanced cooperation on issues of common and strategic interest to successfully tackle 21st-century threats.
- Understand how defence leaders are viewing the many and varied threats to national safety and what countries and defence organizations are doing to counter these.
- Gain unique insights into the next generation of threats from experts in cyber, critical infrastructure, space and more.
- In-person networking with senior leaders from across government, the army and business at Chatham House and access to exclusive ‘under the rule’ sessions.
