Next Generation Dialogue on Industry and Defense: Globalization versus the Culture of National Security
The Defense-Industrial Initiatives Group at CSIS is leading a series – the Next Generation Dialogue on Industry and Defense – to reinvigorate the dialogue between the Department of Defense and industry on significant shifts underway in the defense sector. The series will bring together industry leaders, government stakeholders, and outside experts. This event, the first in the series, focused on ways to find the right balance between protecting national security, accommodating industry's increasingly global reality, and preserving an open investment climate.
