Join us for a conversation with Ambassadors John Herbst and Daniel Fried to discuss the challenges to democratic states and the NATO alliance posed by a resurgent Russia, the concept of hybrid warfare, the rise of cyberattacks and disinformation campaigns. Moderated by CIPS Assistant Direction Professor Alexandra Gheciu, this talk will explore how, and why, these challenges threaten the contemporary rules based international order. We will consider a number of questions: What policy responses are open to Canada, the United States, NATO, and the EU in the face of resurgent challenges to the West? Do the disinformation campaigns of authoritarian actors represent a novel challenge to Western democratic states? Finally, what resources do democratic states have at their disposal to counter the impact of these new challenges?
