The Center for a New American Security (CNAS) in partnership with Axios, presents the 14th Annual CNAS National Security Conference, The America Competes Summer Series. The series will launch on June 17 as part of a broader campaign to renew American competitiveness at home and abroad across a range of vital national security arenas. The conference series will include interactive online sessions with innovative audience participation and engagement. This year’s events will feature CNAS’ expertise on sustaining U.S. military deterrence, securing U.S. technological advantages, advancing U.S. values while countering high-tech illiberalism, strengthening U.S. national security institutions, and bolstering U.S. economic power and leadership—all while showcasing next generation leaders and ideas. Each session will convene policymakers, practitioners, and analysts, as well as peers from the private sector, media, and academia. The conference’s arc will feature cross-cutting initiatives and projects from the Center’s seven research programs.
