Atlanta, GA - Virtual Discussion w/Dr. Ike Wilson

Thursday, February 11, 2021 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM
Time Zone: America/New_York
Local Time: Thursday, February 11, 2021 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM

Please join BENS on Thursday, February 11th as we host a virtual discussion with the President of The Joint Special Operations Unit (JSOU), Dr. Ike Wilson. Dr. Wilson plans to discuss the “Rediscovering the Full Utility of Special Operations.” Special Operations Forces, SOF, like the Nation it serves, is at the threshold crossing of a ‘Next-Era’ – a new, Fourth Age.  This ‘new’ Fourth Age is one of ‘compound security threats’ and a changing character of global geopolitical competition governed by a new and transformative ‘compound security dilemma’ (CSD). This new ‘threshold’ of global security affairs presents the United States with nothing less than an identity crisis – who are we as a Nation in the international relations of today and tomorrow, who do we intended to be as a member state of the international community of states, as well as a leading power?  Moreover, what is American power and the rightful meanings of American power and force for the future?  And more pointedly, what in this sense is the future utility of force of special operations?  Addressing and finding answers to this last question demands nothing less than dedicated efforts at “rediscovering” what may be a somewhat ‘lost’ appreciation for the full utility of Special Operations.
