A New American Security

The 2021 CNAS National Security Conference

CNAS' 2021 annual conference, “A New American Security,” will explore the new challenges, ideas, and voices transforming America's national security landscape. It will feature a series of interactive online sessions on issues such as technology and economic competition, the future of defense, and challenges to democratic values. The conference will showcase a new generation of national security voices, including at “The Pitch,” the Center’s annual competition of ideas, held before an interactive audience and distinguished panel of judges. This multi-day conference will culminate in a live virtual strategy game around the issues shaping the Department of Defense’s next National Defense Strategy.
