During this exclusive multi-format event, the Atlantic Council’s key partners and leading experts in the strategy field will convene to discuss how America should operate in a rapidly changing and dynamic world. The main guiding themes of the forum will be: Strategic Foresight, Challenges and Opportunities for America, and Strategic Solutions. It will feature TED-style talks, a formal, moderated debate on America’s Role in a Changing World, as well a final keynote address by Deputy Secretary Robert Work on how fiction and art can help the Third Offset Strategy succeed. In addition, the event will feature exhibits from the Art of Future Warfare project, including posters, readings, graphic art, and more.

Despite the vitriolic political climate, in this election year it is more important than ever to encourage a bi-partisan conversation on America’s strategy for a shifting global context, which is the overarching goal of the Strategy Initiative and the Global Strategy Forum.
