Security and Technology

Tackling the global security challenges posed by emerging digital technologies.

The rise of technology marks a defining trend of the 21st century. UNIDIR’s Security and Technology Programme develops innovative tools and ideas to prevent and reduce threats to international peace and security arising from digital transformation.

The Programme works on a range of new technologies, including cyber, artificial intelligence, lethal autonomous weapon systems and uncrewed systems. We engage with diverse stakeholders to ensure that global governance frameworks adapt effectively to this rapidly evolving field.
