Mark Lacy | Theorizing Future Conflict

FORUM. is a series of monthly discussions on timely topics in conflict resolution. All FORUM. events are free for ACR-GNY members. Join now!


In this FORUM. event, Mark Lacy will talk about his recent book, Theorising Future Conflict: War Out to 2049. Drawing on thinkers such as Zygmunt Bauman and Paul Virilio, the book suggests that future war will be shaped by three broad tendencies that include a broad range of tactics, technologies and trends; the impure, the granular and the machinic. Through discussions of cybersecurity, urban war, robotics, AI, climate change, science fiction and new strategic concepts, it examines how these tendencies might evolve in the different geopolitical futures and types of war ahead of us.

The discussion will be moderated by ACR-GNY president-elect, Nick Pozek.

Mark Lacy is a senior lecturer in the Department of Politics, Philosophy and Religion at Lancaster University, UK.
