On Wednesday, May 22 at 10:00 a.m. ET, the Atlantic Council will host an #ACFrontPage conversation featuring General CQ Brown, Jr., chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, as he discusses the challenges the joint force faces today and what to expect in the years ahead. This event is part of the Scowcroft Center for Strategy and Security’s flagship Commanders Series programming, generously supported by Saab.

Today, war in Ukraine, conflict in the Middle East, and brewing tensions in the Indo-Pacific—stemming from both China and North Korea—present challenges for the United States military’s ability to effectively meet the demands placed on it. In the coming years and decades, the United States’ enduring military advantage will only be tested further, when facing the challenge of technologically, economically, and militarily prevailing against two great-power rivals, China and Russia, and simultaneously dealing with other conflicts in an increasingly unstable geopolitical environment. 

General Brown will discuss how the United States is prioritizing efforts across the Joint Force to meet these challenges and ensuring military readiness and resiliency as other flashpoints crop up around the globe. 

This edition of #ACFrontPage, hosted by the Atlantic Council’s Forward Defense program, will take place in person at the Atlantic Council studios in Washington, DC. In-person attendance is limited and will be granted on a first-come, first-served basis through registration. The event will also be livestreamed on Atlantic Council TV, YouTube, Facebook, and X (formerly Twitter). To join us in person or virtually, please complete the registration form.
