Speaker: Shahryar Pasandideh,  Research Fellow, International Security Program

Technological advances, whether in the civilian or military spheres, have elicited considerable attention and concern over the past decade. Although there exists a lively debate concerning the implications of technological change for issue areas including the capacity of the United States to project military power vis-à-vis China and the conventional balance between NATO and Russia, many writings do not engage in longitudinal assessments to trace the shifts in military capabilities engendered by technological change.

This seminar explores the relationship between advances in military technology and shifts in military capabilities with a focus on the processes of technological development and measure-countermeasure dynamics. By doing so, it offers new perspectives on the effects of technological change on international politics.

Everyone is welcome to join us online via Zoom! Please register in advance for this seminar:
