Technology and the security of democratic societies
Next generation technologies are increasingly available almost as quickly as they are developed. How can these advanced technologies be deployed responsibly by democratic states? How will rogue regimes and non-state actors look to exploit them and how can democratic governments cooperate in countering their malicious use? How can democratic societies navigate threats from authoritarian adversaries in the information domain and build resilience to cyber threats?
On September 12, the Brookings Global Forum on Democracy and Technology hosted a symposium to address these and other questions.
