To compete and thrive in the 21st century, democracies, and the United States in particular, must develop new national security and economic strategies that address the geopolitics of information. In the 20th century, market capitalist democracies geared infrastructure, energy, trade, and even social policy to protect and advance that era’s key source of power—manufacturing. In this century, democracies must better account for information geopolitics across all dimensions of domestic policy and national strategy.
Join us for this opportunity to learn from one of this country's most accomplished diplomats, Ambassador Marc Grossman. As part of the Future of Diplomacy Project at Harvard Kennedy School, Ambassador Grossman is part of a distinguished team of former ambassadors who have embarked on an ambitious project to reinvigorate the U.S. Foreign Service and State Department to ensure that those who serve this country abroad have the tools needed for 21st century geopolitical challenges. This event will be of particular interest to students interested in careers in the Foreign Service. But global citizens of all sorts will find something to think about with this program.
