Launched in 2019, the Innovations Dialogue is one of UNIDIR’s flagship events.
The conference series was established pursuant to the 2018 General Assembly
resolution1 on the “Role of science and technology in the context of international
security and disarmament.” The Innovations Dialogue provides a unique multistakeholder
forum—convening experts from the diplomatic and policy community,
technical and scientific community, industry groups, and academia and civil
society—to collectively examine developments in science and technology that have
potentially radical and novel implications for international security and disarmament.
Through fact-based and balanced discussions, the dialogue aims to dispel myths
about scientific and technological innovations and build a shared understanding of
the potential benefits, risks and policy challenges posed by such innovations.
