Russia Confidential editors

(A review of the international conference “Emerging Technologies and Global Security: An Agenda for the 21st Century”)

On September 29, 2016 Moscow hosted the international conference “Emerging Technologies and Global Security: An Agenda for the 21st Century”. The event was organized by PIR Center and the Diplomatic Academy of the Russian Foreign Ministry. It was attended by more than 130 Russian and foreign experts who represent different professional communities, but are ready and willing to work together on utilizing the opportunities opened up by new technologies while at the same time minimizing the global security risks they pose.

The conference focused on the development of new measures that could allow us to minimize the risks of new technologies without stifling their potential to do good. Specific areas under discussion included security of space exploration, nuclear nonproliferation and nuclear security in a new technological reality, political and legal aspects of the use of lethal autonomous weapons systems, and modern cybersecurity threats to critical infrastructure.

In this issue of Russia Confidential we offer highlights from these debates, and summarize the key ideas and proposals voiced at the conference.
