Join the Heritage Center for an event on the new era of Great Power Competition is dawning between the U.S., China and Russia, and the struggle for dominance spans all the world’s oceans. A new era of Great Power Competition is dawning between the U.S., China and Russia, and the struggle for dominance spans all the world’s oceans. The U.S. Navy is turning to meet this new threat, but the fleet has spent recent decades focused on near-coast operations and support for counterterrorism. Now, it must confront rival navies on the high seas and compensate for Chinese and Russian uses of non-military tactics such as hybrid warfare and coercive behavior. A new era requires new thinking and new concepts of the Navy’s role in America’s security. Join our expert panel for an enlightening discussion on how the Navy can engage and succeed in Great Power Competition. Make sure to register for the event here.
