Under the Goldwater-Nicholas Defense Department Reorganization Act of 1986, the President must submit an annual report on the national security strategy of the United States to Congress. In roughly 9 months, a new national security strategy will be produced. Much of the work will be done between now and mid-Fall, so now is the time for experts to weigh in on the challenges and opportunities around creating an effective strategy. Our panel of experts will provide the Defense, Development, Homeland Security, and State Department perspectives on the upcoming 2018 U.S. National Security Strategy.
Our panel will discuss how the U.S. National Security Strategies have differed since September 11, 2001. How has the United States' approach to failed and fragile states, combating terrorism, and fighting the spread drugs changed over the course of the last four national security strategies?
Please come prepared with questions for our panel of experts and please use the hashtag #CSISLive for any tweets during the event.
