Forever Vigilant? Technology and the Rise of Boundless Warfare

Synopsis
A University of Bath Public Lecture Podcast. Professor David Galbreath’s inaugural lecture asks whether the evolution of technology requires nations to be forever vigilant in the face of a new type of warfare. Against new threats to security, posed most recently by organisations like Islamic State, what is the current role for states, and what is the future for power and security, security and defence? Professor Galbreath argues that each of these questions have serious policy implications for understanding how technology is changing both the character and nature of warfare. [42 minutes].
