On Monday, April 11, 2022, 4:30–6:30 p.m. EST, the John R. Reilly Center and the Notre Dame International Security Center will co-host a book launch for "Future Peace: Technology, Aggression, and the Rush to War" by Robert H. Latiff, published by University of Notre Dame Press. The event will be held at Foley's, O'Neill Hall at the University of Notre Dame. It is free and open to the public.


Today’s militaries are increasingly reliant on highly networked autonomous systems, artificial intelligence, and advanced weapons that were previously the domain of science fiction writers. In a world where these complex technologies clash with escalating international tensions, what can we do to decrease the chances of war? In Future Peace, the eagerly awaited sequel to Future War, Robert H. Latiff questions our overreliance on technology and examines the pressure-cooker scenario created by the growing animosity between the United States and its adversaries, our globally deployed and thinly stretched military, the capacity for advanced technology to catalyze violence, and the American public’s lack of familiarity with these topics.

The book was the focus of Latiff's research when he served as a faculty fellow at the Notre Dame Institute for Advanced Study during the 2019–2020 academic year.


Major General (Ret.) Robert H. Latiff is an adjunct professor with the John J. Reilly Center for Science, Technology, and Values at the University of Notre Dame and research professor at George Mason University. He is the author of Future War: Preparing for the New Global Battlefield.
