At the 4th Annual Defense One Summit, global security leaders will gather to explore three themes — Crisis, Conflict, and Continuity — as the American presidency shifts to a new commander in chief.

As the war on terrorism rages on, senior officials will sit with national security journalists to discuss their views, goals, and predictions about a range of issues, from daily combat in Iraq to the grand-strategy games of the great powers, and the challenges of managing budgets, equipment, and people as they shift to a new administration.

View our 2013, 2014, and 2015 events and stay tuned for registration, agenda, and speaker updates.
