The Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) will host the fourth Stockholm Security Conference (SSC 19) on 3 October 2019, under the theme ‘Conflict and technology: Now and in the future.’ Through plenary and breakout sessions, the conference will look at how the nature of conflict is changing today and how technology impacts conflict.
Building on from the previous year's conference themed ''Emerging technologies: Unseen connections, missing players, absent solutions", SSC 19 will consider the trends and investigate to what extent rapid technological developments are shaping conflict and what this means for dealing with conflicts today and in the future. The conference will also evaluate where changes are currently taking place and who is impacted by technology in conflict.
SSC 19 will provide an informal setting for discussion between leading experts and representatives from the political, military, academic, and business communities, as well as civil society. Gathering these different communities at the same conference to jointly examine conflict through the lens of technology will bring the conversation closer to identifying all facets of the problem and thereby develop better solutions.
