Note: This event is sold out



Two of the nation’s leading foreign policy experts discuss the challenges confronting America and the Trump Administration in 2019: a world in which there-emergence of superpower rivalry with Russia and China, and growing threats from Iran and North Korea, contribute to the sense of global disarray. But this isn’t like the old Cold War. It is an era made far more complicated by the emergence of new technologies, especially state-vs.-state cyber combat, that put those nations in a constant state of short-of-war operations to undermine each other. Those technologies are altering the geopolitical power balance like nothing since the invention of the atom bomb.

David E. Sanger, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, is national security correspondent for the New York Times and the author of The Perfect Weapon: War, Sabotage, and Fear in the Cyber AgeRichard N. Haass is the president of the Council on Foreign Relations and the author of A World in Disarray: American Foreign Policy and the Crisis of the Old Order.
