Description

Cyber threats, fake news, propaganda campaigns and artificial intelligence. This so-called hybrid warfare are the new concerns in the world of defence. Traditionally NATO is known for putting conventional arms control at the center of its attention, but how should they respond to those new threats of today’s complex world? Should they drastically alter their policies to stay politically relevant?
In today’s world politics Russia is repeatedly accused of spreading fake news and China and the United States are engaged in a trade war. These cyber threats and economic pressures call for new security strategies. How should NATO respond? Together with Marietje Schaake, Jamie Shea and Max Smeets we discuss NATO’s answers to these hybrid tactics, reflect critically on NATO’s presence in our day-to-day security and take up European security challenges in a changing global order.
