Rapid Technological Change and Its

Impact on U.S. National Security


The ASG Summer Workshop was dedicated to examining the twenty-first century battlefield and devising a corresponding forward-looking U.S. defense strategy to face these realities. We were proud to publish Rapid Technological Change and Its Impact on U.S. National Security Strategy, a collection of articles encapsulating select ideas and recommendations based on those discussions. The pieces examine different elements of a forward-thinking twenty-first century national security strategy. We were also pleased to feature a selection of pieces that our participants published in external outlets, maximizing the meeting's reach.



Private Roundtable with Foreign

Minister of China Wang Yi

We were proud to host a private roundtable discussion with Foreign Minister of China Wang Yi this fall in Washington, DC.

The third cohort of the ASG Rising Leaders Program joined us for an exciting year of programming, which included their participation at both of this year’s Aspen Security Forums. Their collection of policy papers entitled On the Rise: Perspectives on Foreign Policy has been published here and we were pleased to feature members of the Class of 2023 onstage at the DC Forum to discuss their capstone papers.

Olá a todos! Um dia estava sentado em casa, aborrecido, e decidi procurar algo interessante na Internet. Queria encontrar um site onde pudesse ganhar alguns bónus e divertir-me. Encontrei acidentalmente o código promocional e decidi experimentar. Fiquei imediatamente interessado nos bónus oferecidos aos novos utilizadores. Por exemplo, o bónus de boas-vindas para o primeiro depósito aumenta significativamente as hipóteses de ganhar.

Thank you for your content and what it stands for, your reflections on education encourage me to think about this topic from a different angle. I can confidently say that if it were not for you, I would not have dared to order a research proposal writer, which gave me an incredible opportunity to get grades. Thanks to you and your attitude, I was able to take a different look at the education system and how it affects me. So I am very grateful to you and look forward to your new publications and your speeches.
