Holding the Future Hostage: A Conference on Hybrid Wars

Modern warfare increasingly involves unconventional means such as extreme financial regulations, media censorship, provocations by non-state actors, and sanctions. This combination of tactics, what some analysts have called a “hybrid war,” has increasingly targeted governments deemed threats to U.S. hegemony and finance capital. This conference at The People’s Forum explores the waging of hybrid wars in dialogue with the historians, journalists, cultural producers, and antiwar activists who are actively documenting and confronting them. See more on Facebook.
