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.
About the series
The First 100 Days: Environmental Policy After the Election
Prior to every U.S. presidential election, transition teams on both sides prepare policy proposals for the first 100 days. In this campaign, the candidates have voiced dramatically different views on climate change, environmental regulations, environmental racism and integrating climate goals in economic recovery. This series of workshops will look at potential risks and opportunities facing both transition teams in 2021. Is there room for collaboration on climate change, no matter who comes into power? Because this election will have a big impact on countries around the world, the workshop series will include perspectives of global environmental leaders.
