Our Mission

Halifax International Security Forum advances greater strategic cooperation among democracies to meet the world’s most pressing security challenges.

Defining security broadly, Halifax International Security Forum engages an approach that addresses today’s range of threats, from war, terrorism, cyber attacks, and nuclear proliferation to climate change, resource security, pandemics, and economic stability.

Halifax maintains that true security is only achieved when people enjoy the benefits of democracy, leading in turn to economic opportunity, and lasting peace.
