General Sir Richard Barrons, the former commander of the UK’s Joint Forces Command — whose remit included military intelligence, special forces, and cyber, joins Azeem Azhar to discuss how technology is changing the definition of warfare and why our society’s resilience in the face of threats to peace must be founded on education. As war returns to Europe, General Barrons’ warning about how technology is transforming conflict is more prescient than ever.

They also address:

  • The nature of Russia’s offensive capabilities and how they have previously deployed cyber and disinformation strategies.
  • What societal resilience is and how it can ensure democracy’s survival.
  • What better leadership looks like in the exponential age.
