About Us

Halifax International Security Forum advances a unique and modern vision of security by promoting greater strategic cooperation among democracies.

Halifax brings together individuals who are on the ground facing consequential local threats, writers who challenge and influence the world’s thinking on security, and decision-makers who make the tough choices.

Setting the security agenda each November for the coming calendar year, the Forum convenes relevant and key leaders in an unscripted, intimate atmosphere over three days in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The community that meets at Halifax represents more than 70 countries, yet is limited to 300 participants.

Recognized as the leading gathering of democratic leaders committed to global security and prosperity, Halifax International Security Forum is widely acknowledged by the international community as an essential annual meeting place.

Halifax International Security Forum is an independent, non-profit, non-partisan organization based in Washington, DC.
