Confrontation between the West on one hand and China and Russia on the other is growing. And the confrontation is not primarily military: it takes place in the daily lives of ordinary citizens all over the Western world. In this talk, Elisabeth Braw will discuss what is happening and what to do about it.

Elisabeth Braw is a visiting fellow at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), where she focuses on deterrence against emerging forms of aggression, such as hybrid and gray-zone threats, and non-kinetic operations including cyberspace operations. She is also a columnist with Foreign Policy, where she writes on national security and the globalized economy.
Before joining AEI, Ms. Braw was a senior research fellow at the Royal United Services Institute for Defence and Security Studies in London, where she founded its modern deterrence project.
