    Economic security screening: A discussion on geopolitics, markets and compliance

    About the Event

    Please join the Atlantic Council’s GeoEconomics Center and Kharon for a virtual roundtable exploring investment screening regimes and their interaction with geopolitics, defence, international markets and compliance.
    Both of our organizations have observed growing interest in hearing more about the inner workings of the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) and global partner regimes.
    Over the last few years, the expanded application of investment screening as a key policy tool has become one of the most striking trends in economic statecraft and national security. With countries around the world adopting varying screening models, government decisions risk working at cross-purposes with partners, and compliance is becoming increasingly complicated for the private sector.
    As countries refine their policies and application, our event will take a fresh look at their purpose, effectiveness, and implications for government policy and how national security plays out in the private sector. The topic is especially timely after the first meeting of the Transatlantic Trade and Technology Council. To share their insights, we’ve invited Peter Harrell, Kazeki Jun, and Huw Walters in conversation with Kit Conklin and Julia Friedlander.
