About Us

Halifax International Security Forum is a forum and a network for thoughtful and engaged decision-makers from governments, militaries, business, academia, and the media to work together to meet emerging threats in a changing world.

The annual Halifax International Security Forum brings people together in an informal setting that only a place like Halifax, Nova Scotia can provide. As one of the secrets to its success, Halifax creates an informal, unscripted, discussion-based atmosphere that encourages interactive and free-flowing exchanges. The Forum gives participants two days without distraction to focus on pressing security issues, conduct bilateral meetings, and network.

Halifax International Security Forum plays the role of host so government officials are free from their own hosting responsibilities and have the opportunity to focus solely on engaging with participants.

Simply put, Halifax provides a unique opportunity for informed leaders to learn from each other, share opinions, generate new ideas and put them into action.

Halifax International Security Forum is a non-profit, non-partisan organization based in Washington, D.C.
