Emerging Threats

A Political-Economic Conflict Seminar and Panel

Register Today


Current U.S. security concerns are broader and more multi-dimensional than at any time in our nation’s history. The interests and values of the United States are inextricably tied to states (both large and small) and movements (both benign and hostile) throughout the world. 

With the rise of China, the resurgence of Russia, and the nuclearization of rogue states such as Iran and North Korea, the United States is challenged on many fronts. China and Russia are also fielding advanced conventional weapons and new non-kinetic technological and economic capabilities at a rapid pace.

Senior leadership in the Department of Defense must confront a global environment that is not only daunting in its complexity, but one that is undergoing vast social, political, and economic changes. Whether the issues are economic, cultural, or ideological, together they form a dynamic challenge to the wisdom and the resources of our foreign and defense policy.



This one-day program is broadcast live from the Capitol Hill Club and streamed via YouTube (or other available platforms) to military bases and personnel around the world. The program will feature a minimum of four presentations in the morning followed by an open panel discussion in the afternoon. Questions from the attendees will be fielded by the program moderator via “chat.”

Exceptionally relevant topics and highly-credentialed speakers; very thought-provoking, in a great way; all speakers were appropriate as were the topics. As well-run and organized a class/course as I’ve ever been to.

Facilities, organization and speakers were superior. One of the best educational experiences I have had.

Format is terrific! Lots of speakers from across government enterprise and no power points. Plenty of time for engaging dialogue. I love to hear what experts and insiders have to say about out WDC enterprise.
