On 3 October 2019, the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) will host the fourth Stockholm Security Conference (SSC 19), this year under the theme ‘Conflict and technology: now and in the future’.
Through plenary and breakout sessions, the conference will look at how the nature of conflict is changing today and how technology impacts conflict. The conference will consider the trends and investigate to what extent rapid technological developments are shaping conflict and what this means for dealing with conflicts today and in the future. Locating where changes are currently taking place and who is impacted by technology in conflict will also be evaluated.
SSC 19 will provide an informal setting for discussion between leading experts and representatives from the political, military, academic, and business communities, as well as civil society. Gathering these different communities at the same conference to jointly examine conflict through the lens of technology will bring the conversation closer to identifying all facets of the problem and thereby develop better solutions.
In 2018, the Stockholm Security Conference was held under the theme ‘Emerging technologies: Unseen connections, missing players, absent solutions’. Watch the film ‘Exploring security risks posed by newly emerged technologies’ and listen to expert interviews filmed during the conference.
