Evolving types of warfare have increased the challenges to the development of effective international security strategies.

From increasing disinformation efforts to the re-emergence of great power competition, policymakers are dealing with an increasingly complex security environment.

Drawing from Kathleen McInnis’ recently published novel, The Heart of War: Misadventures in the Pentagon, the speakers discuss the many strategic challenges currently faced by the international security apparatus.

  • How effectively are security institutions dealing with these challenges?

  • Do the people within bureaucracies feel empowered to formulate and advance national security policies?

  • And are the experiences of women in these bureaucracies different to those of men, and if so, how?
