Coping with Surprise in Great Power Conflicts

With the rise of great power competition comes the possibility of great power surprise in four dimensions: strategic, technological, doctrinal, and diplomatic. Although some surprise is inevitable, defeat is not. CSIS is hosting the release of the study Avoiding Coping with Strategic Surprise in Great Power Conflicts and a panel discussion on how the United States can better anticipate and adapt to the unexpected.
