The Marine Corps and the future of warfare

Past Event

The Marine Corps is pursuing significant changes to address the realities of great power competition, including implementing a new force design. Evolving technology, uncertainty about the budgetary and fiscal environment, and accelerating innovation by America’s emerging competitors have forced the Marine Corps to adapt by reconfiguring itself to better address the nation’s future defense outlook. Much work, though, remains to be done.

On May 18, Foreign Policy at Brookings hosted Commandant of the Marine Corps General David H. Berger to discuss Marine Corps modernization, the budgetary environment, and the challenges of great power competition. Questions from the audience followed the conversation.

Viewers submitted questions via email to or on Twitter using #MarineCorps.
