The Center on the Future of War organizes conferences, annual speakers’ series, lectures, and seminars at ASU, in the Phoenix community, and in Washington, D.C. These efforts highlight the work of Center faculty affiliates, link the university with New America, and support ASU innovation and scholarship. They also connect ASU faculty and students as well as the larger community with nationally known experts, emerging research and thoughtful commentary. Center events are designed to stimulate public debate and discussion on global politics and security and cover a variety of issues related to the changing character of war and conflict.
