US National Security Outlook: Priorities and Challenges

October 18 at 2:00 pm PDT / 5:00 pm EDT

Today's national security outlook demands a global perspective. With so many interconnected wide-ranging issues impacting us today, understanding how to preserve and protect America requires a comprehensive knowledge of the intricate threats it is faced with every day. What is the current situation in the South Pacific and what implications are there for the United States and China with tensions rising in this region? How will the Middle East continue to move forward towards peace and stability, with immense change now underway in Afghanistan and after the signing of the Abraham Accords just over one year ago? With domestic issues straining the nation, how will the public and private sectors continue to help push America towards recovery from the pandemic? The Milken Institute has assembled a panel of experts to evaluate the country's current national security status and will identify the challenges that will need to be overcome to safeguard it's people and presence across the world.
