The concept of national security dates to the 17th century and the Peace of Westphalia when sovereign nation-states were established. In the modern era, national security broadly seeks to ensure the security and defense of a country, most recently expanding to encompass many unforeseen challenges including threats from non-state actors, cyber warfare, economic instruments of statecraft, and environmental degradation.
Ongoing geopolitical tensions and conflicts in various regions continue to shape security policies, prompting a delicate balance between diplomacy and defense strategies.
Join us for an insightful discussion on the broad evolution of national security presented by Dr. Treistman from the University of New Haven. This event will also feature information on the new partnership between uOttawa PDI and the University of New Haven, offering great learning opportunities.
