Professor Joseph Nye speaks at a public event as a part of the NCAFP’s cyber panel

On April 29, 2015, the NCAFP brought together a panel of thought leaders in the field of cybersecurity and U.S. foreign policy to discuss the impact of the internet and new technologies on the upcoming presidential election.  Their conversation crossed a number of disciplinary boundaries as they all came to agree that web-based technologies will inevitably present challenges that all U.S. leaders will face in the coming years.  They frequently mentioned the need to develop a system of multiple stakeholders on the digital stage, and that U.S. hegemony in cyberspace may be coming to an end, for better or for worse.
