Abstract:

Recent events and trends in world affairs have focused attention upon the issue of inter-state economic conflict and possible national security implications in the decade ahead. In this context, the Office of Naval Research ONR took the initiative within the Department of Defense DOD to sponsor a workshop which would bring together key individuals from Government, the academic community, and the private research sector for purposes of exploring and discussing the national security implications of future economic conflict and the possible needs for research on this subject. This report presents not only a summary of the highlights and results of the workshop, but also a detailed record of the proceedings. The main body of the report consists of a concise, point-by-point presentation of the principal consensus, as well as divergent, views, opinions, and comments of the Workshops participants with respect to economic conflict and national security research.
