Ocean Security Forum 2021 [Video]

The Stephenson Ocean Security Project highlights the ways that global security challenges arise from marine resource competition and works towards solutions that support sustainable development, coalition building, and the need for American leadership. This year’s Forum will examine changes in U.S. policy towards marine resource security over the past three Administrations and the evolving role of private sector technology in transparency at sea. A first panel of senior government officials will explore the ways in which U.S. policy on marine resource security has evolved across the Obama, Trump, and Biden Administrations including a focus on the linked impacts of climate change and escalating competition for marine resources. A second panel will explore the rapidly growing field of private sector tools for enhancing global maritime domain awareness and the opportunities and challenges the U.S. government faces in using these tools to improve human rights and marine resource security. We will also look towards the upcoming 2022 OurOceans Conference and consider opportunities for making significant progress in addressing IUU fishing and related human rights and marine resource challenges over the next five years.The Stephenson Ocean Security Project was established through generous support from the Phillip Stephenson Foundation. This forum has been developed in partnership with the CSIS Human Rights Initiative, the International Corporate Accountability Roundtable, World Wildlife Fund, and Oceana.———————————————A nonpartisan institution, CSIS is the top national security think tank in the world.

A Conversation with The Honorable Michael Vickers on Modernizing Intelligence for the Gray Zone [Video]

Please join the CSIS International Security Program on Monday, December 13, 2021, for the launch of the new brief, “Detect and Understand: Modernizing Intelligence for the Gray Zone.”Today, actors such as China and Russia frequently operate below the threshold of conventional warfare, mixing political, economic, information, and military tools to advance their interests. In this so-called “gray zone” between routine statecraft and war, uncertainty permeates intelligence. To avoid escalation, aggressors design gray zone activities to evade detection outright or to frustrate intelligence efforts to attribute blame, quantify risk, and inform responses.In this conversation, Former Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence Michael Vickers will share his insights on current and future intelligence challenges. This conversation will be moderated by Jake Harrington, Intelligence Fellow in the CSIS International Security Program.This event is made possible by support from Thomson Reuters Special Services.———————————————A nonpartisan institution, CSIS is the top national security think tank in the world.

Schieffer Series – Nuclear Weapons: The Growing Risk [Video]

Over the past 76 years, nuclear weapon delivery systems have become faster, more powerful, and more widespread, and there are more than 13,000 nuclear weapons in nine countries in the world today, with more countries seeking to arm themselves. Moreover, the risk that a leader will make a terrible decision to use nuclear weapons, or that a terrorist could get one, is growing; communications channels between nuclear-armed nations are atrophying; our nuclear weapons and warning systems are facing new cyber-threats; and advances in military technology are proving destabilizing. These factors make it more likely that a leader might make the decision, in a moment of crisis, to use nuclear weapons based on false warnings of a nuclear attack or other miscalculation. Each nation with nuclear arms has a responsibility to reduce the risk of nuclear blunder, and nations must work together to eliminate nuclear risks.In this event, Senator Sam Nunn, Chairman Emeritus of the CSIS Board of Trustees, will be joined by Secretary Ernest Moniz, former United States Secretary of Energy, to discuss the omnipresent and growing risk of nuclear weapons and how President Biden and the global community can take concrete actions to reduce the likelihood of nuclear launch. CSIS Trustee Bob Schieffer will moderate the discussion.About the CSIS-TCU Schieffer SeriesIn honor of and hosted by CBS News legend and CSIS Trustee Bob Schieffer, the Schieffer Series features thoughtful panel discussions with senior officials, lawmakers, journalists, and policy experts to discuss global challenges and critical issues of national security and foreign policy.Now in its 13th consecutive year, the Schieffer Series is produced by the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) in partnership with the Bob Schieffer College of Communication at Texas Christian University (TCU) in Fort Worth, Texas.This series is made possible with the generous support of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF).———————————————A nonpartisan institution, CSIS is the top national security think tank in the world.
