Report Launch: Optimizing U.S. Export Controls for Critical and Emerging Technologies - Working with Partners

March 5, 2024 • 2:15 – 3:00 pm EST

Since last May, the CSIS Scholl Chair in International Business has published three reports on ​reimagining the U.S. export controls. Please join the Scholl Chair for a presentation of the findings of the third paper, Optimizing U.S. Export Controls for Critical and Emerging Technologies: Working with Partners. The presentation will be followed by a discussion on how to best partner with allies to update the current export control regime. William Alan Reinsch and Thibault Denamiel will be joined by Emily Benson, the Director of the Project on Trade and Technology and author of her own report, Establishing a New Multilateral Export Control Regime.

The first report compares current control lists to see where they overlap and evaluates quantum computing, artificial intelligence, semiconductors, biotechnology, and intangible goods to determine whether additional controls are necessary. In the second report, the Scholl Chair assesses how the Department of Commerce’s tools and listings can be leveraged most efficiently to complement an expansion of controls at the high end of technological advancements. Building off of the prior reports, the third analyzes these technologies' supply chains and assesses key economic partners to multilateralize export controls in quantum technologies, semiconductors, biotechnology, artificial intelligence, communications and networking technologies, and uncrewed vehicles.

This event is made possible through generous support from the Smith Richardson Foundation.
