On 8–14 November 2022, SIPRI hosted the seventh annual Stockholm Security Conference (SSC22) in a virtual format. Videos from the public sessions are now available on SIPRI’s YouTube channel.
The conference featured 14 sessions on the theme ‘Battlefields of the Future—Trends of Conflict and Warfare in the 21st Century: Effects and Impact of the War in Ukraine’. So far, the conference has engaged more than 1000 unique participants from around the world.
SSC22 explored the means and methods of warfare used in Ukraine and what implications they have for military spending, the development of new weapons and the role of information warfare. The conference also explored the effects of the war on the global multilateral system and regional dynamics as well as on old and new nuclear risks. The concepts of protection of civilians and urban warfare discussed during the 2021 conference have become even more relevant. This year’s conference explored the complexities surrounding the protection of civilians with a particular focus on gender and peacekeeping perspectives.
