5th Annual ALLIES Civil Military Relations Conference on "Security, Society and the New Climate Regime"

Date & Time November 10-11, 2018 10:00am - 8:00pm

Security, Society, and the New Climate Regime

Join ALLIES and visiting students from the U.S Military Academy at West Point, the U.S. Naval Academy at Annapolis, Wellesley College, the U.S. Coast Guard Academy and more for this conference focusing on the changing climate and its impact on national and international security. Global warming has impacted the relationships between governments and their populations, as well as the roles and responsibilities of the military. The political and social impacts of climate change demand a whole-of-society response, while the military is often tasked with the implementation of these solutions. We will examine the role of civilian and military leaders in addressing oncoming challenges in the short- and long-term.
