How globalized information networks can be used for strategic advantage? For a century, economic interdependence was perceived as having a moderating effect on international relations. In recent years, however, we have seen China, Russia, and the United States weaponize economic networks that they control in arenas ranging from finance and energy to transport. In exploring the conditions under which weaponized interdependence is attempted, the contributors to this volume challenge scholars and practitioners to think differently about foreign economic policy, national security, and statecraft for the twenty-first century. What areas of the global economy are most vulnerable to unilateral control of information and financial networks? How sustainable is the use of weaponized interdependence? What are the possible responses from targeted actors? And can the open global economy endure if weaponized interdependence becomes a default tool for managing international relations?
