Study #8

Great powers and digitisation: What are the implications for world order?

This study focuses on the triad of data, its processing and its conversion into economic and military power to shed light on the race between the United States and China for supremacy in the digital age. It highlights arms and arms control, strategic stability and, prospectively, the implications of a potential quantum computing revolution. The study ends with a number of further-reaching thoughts regarding the implications of the digital age’s world order for liberal democracies such as Germany.
