"Open Source" Foreign Policy in the Digital Age

“No one person, no one alliance, no one nation, no one of us is as smart as all of us thinking together.” - Former Supreme Allied Commander at NATO Adm. James Stavridis.

What does it mean for foreign policy leaders and international professionals now that social media has become an essential tool for collaborative problem solving across nations, sectors and disciplines?

Journalist Spencer Ackerman, US National Security Editor at The Guardian, moderates this multidisciplinary panel of global leaders at the nexus of digital technology and foreign policy: Adm. James Stavridis, Dean of The Fletcher School at Tufts University and former Supreme Allied Commander at NATO; Special Representative to Muslim Communities Farah Pandith of the U.S. Department of State; and Senior Development Technologist + Media Adviser Joshua Haynes of USAID discuss the opportunities, challenges, and underpinnings of “Open Source” problem solving in the 21st century.
