Full Summary: INTA Brown Bag
Horizon Scanning: What it means for you
Presented by
Tom McDermott
Director of Technology Policy Initiatives

Horizon scanning is a technique for detecting early signs of potentially important developments through a systemic examination of threats and opportunities, with emphasis on new technology and its effects on major issues. This futurefocused method is highly applicable to challenges in international affairs. Potential areas of inquiry for horizon scanning are the trends shaping energy geopolitics, evolving conditions around cyber security, and the impact of
emerging technologies on the global order. Join Tom McDermott, Director of Technology Policy
Initiatives for the Nunn School, for a discussion of what horizon scanning is and what it does, as well as its role in understanding present-day and future issues in international affairs.


Time will also be devoted to exploring how the broader Nunn School community can get in on the action.
