Australian Strategic Policy Institute's International Cyber Policy Centre to host CNAS adjunct fellow Elsa Kania as a 2018 Fulbright Specialist

The CNAS Technology and National Security Program is pleased to announce that adjunct fellow Elsa Kania has been selected by the Australian Strategic Policy Institute’s (ASPI) International Cyber Policy Centre (ICPC) as a 2018 Fulbright Specialist. Kania will be in Australia with ASPI ICPC from mid-March to mid-April. More information on ASPI can be found on their website at: https://www.aspi.org.au/

“Elsa embodies the mission of the Fulbright Specialist program—building stronger ties between the United States and its partners and allies by focusing on people as policy. Both Australia and the United States stand to gain tremendously from her time with ASPI” said CNAS Technology and National Security Program Director Paul Scharre.

ASPI ICPC senior analyst Danielle Cave echoed the sentiments, stating “Elsa is perfectly positioned to make a valuable and timely contribution as Australia, and our wider region, seek to navigate both the opportunities and challenges presented by the proliferation of AI technologies.”

Kania will participate in ASPI events, roundtables, and have meetings with government, business and civil society.
