Host: American Enterprise Institute. Globalization and rapid advances in high technology are transforming how we will live, work, and protect ourselves in the twenty-first century and beyond. Many of the most important and revolutionary of these changes are taking place in the developing world and emerging markets, offering new hope for even the poorest of nations. Even as the transfer of talent, technology, and investment overseas spurs positive innovation, new risks arise as terrorists and rogue states relentlessly pursue technologies to develop weapons of mass destruction. Developing sound policies to promote the safe transfer of technology, as well as preventing these technologies from falling into the hands of those who would do us harm, are profound challenges confronting us all. Please join AEI and the Bureau of Industry and Security of the U.S. Department of Commerce for a discussion about these important issues.
