Guest Speaker: Christi Siver

Concerns about Russian interference in elections and Chinese intellectual property theft have highlighted the importance of the internet in national security conversations. Security professionals are increasingly grappling with new and old adversaries in the cyber environment. At the same time, the introduction of the internet into new venues is enabling the spread of hateful racial and ethnic messages in fragile states. Better understanding the cyber environment, stakeholders, and policy options is critical to both U.S. national security and global stability.

Christi Siver is an Associate Professor of Political Science at the College of Saint Benedict and Saint John's University. She did her undergraduate work at Lewis & Clark College, her Masters in International Relations and International Economics at Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies, and her PhD in Political Science at the University of Washington. She teaches courses on international relations and international security. Her current research interests include international humanitarian law, military technology, and comparative law.
