How will the hybrid threats of today and tomorrow impact our governments and societies? Where have NATO allies and partners succeeded in addressing these evolving threats, and where can more be done? Through our #HybridFutures campaign, in partnership with the U.S. Mission to NATO, CEPA is exploring unconventional takes on the future of hybrid warfare to inspire innovative thinking on how the transatlantic community can get ahead.

Listen to Max Brooks and Lauren Speranza discuss the geopolitics of the COVID-19 pandemic, the effects of information operations on democracy, and how emerging technologies will shape future warfare. Brooks explores how the global community is responding to these challenges, as highlighted in his best-selling novel World War Z, and how the United States and its allies and partners can harness creativity and fiction to prepare for future threats.

Speaker: Max Brooks, Author, "World War Z"; Author, "Devolution"
