U.S. National Security and Increasing Geopolitical Uncertainty

The emergence over the past decade of intensified great power competition has fueled fragmentation and heralded a particularly disruptive period for the global economy. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, fraught U.S.-China relations and the risk of escalation in the South China Sea continue to drive a disproportionate amount of uncertainty in the world today.

Michèle Flournoy, Co-Founder and Managing Partner of Teneo's partner firm WestExec Advisors, Chair of the Center for a New American Security and Under Secretary of Defense for Policy under President Obama, joins our host Kevin Kajiwara for a discussion on the state of U.S. national security and the maelstrom of geopolitical risks facing the world through the unique lens of Flournoy’s long-standing career as a military and defense policy expert.
