The PRISM Speaker Series supports NDU faculty in their efforts to adapt instruction and curriculum to the rapidly evolving national security environment, and enhance the educational experience of the NDU Class of 2020/21.
The global order is undergoing tectonic shifts. With these shifts come extraordinary dangers, as well as opportunities. Great power competition, hybrid and gray zone conflict, weaponization of new technologies, terrorism and fragile states, climate change, and global pandemics: These are among the issues that the National Defense University’s flagship journal of national and international security, PRISM, tracks. This speaker series, initiated in May 2020, presents diverse perspectives on these vital issues for 21st century security from thought leaders in the policymaking, practitioner, and academic communities. The series weaves together three related lines of effort; 1) Geoeconomics, 2) Great Power Competition, and 3) Innovation and Emerging, Disruptive Technologies.
