The Brookings Institution and Senator Charles Schumer will present a symposium on technological change in warfare and new threats to American security. Featured speakers will include Senator Schumer; Richard Clarke from the National Security Council; Michael O’Hanlon of Brookings; David Whelan from DARPA; and John Nagengast from the National Security Agency.

The symposium will focus on the way new and emerging technology is changing our conception of war fighting and national security. Topics will range from terrorism and counter-terrorism to cyber warfare, from the so-called revolution in military affairs to germ and chemical weapons. A panel discussion with questions from the audience will follow the participants’ introductory remarks. This luncheon is open to congressional members and staff as well as members of the media and the public.
