Current Strategy Forum | Dr. Ian A. Bremmer, Eurasia Group, keynote address | June 12, 2012
The 63rd annual Current Strategy Forum (CSF) hosted by the Secretary of the Navy explored the theme "Global Trends: Implications for National Policy and the Maritime Forces."
Our nation's strategic challenges continue to evolve in number and complexity. Extraordinary fiscal deficits at home, economic crises in Europe, the rising economies of developing nations, unrest in the Middle East, shifting trade routes, and climate change are just a few of the developments shaping the future geostrategic landscape. Additionally, the speed with which the geopolitical environment is changing creates uncertainty regarding strategy and makes difficult the allocation of resources. As our military forces continue to deal with the war in Afghanistan and its aftermath, they must also focus on emerging threats. America's sights are shifting away from two land wars, to the problem of ensuring security in a fiscally constrained environment. This year's forum will seek to refresh our 'mental maps' regarding the global system and help bring clarity to the rapidly changing geostrategic environment by presenting the perspective of leading experts on: (1) how history may help inform us about our future; (2) the nature and challenges of today's global system; (3) the potential paths that lie ahead for the nation's future; and, (4) the implications of these developments for the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps.
The 63rd Current Strategy Forum explored the following issues:
- Impact on U.S. security and the international strategic environment of the drawdown from extended wars
- Impact on U.S. grand strategy of continued slow economic growth and continued turmoil in the international economy
- Problems and prospects in implementing the strategic review "Sustaining U.S. Global Leadership: Priorities for 21st Century Defense"
- Strategic implications of high-tech weaponry in contested commons
- Implications for the roles and missions of U.S. naval forces
