The Halifax International Security Forum invites subject experts with significant practical experience to volunteer their time throughout the summer months to discuss and debate ideas to be addressed head-on at Halifax in November. The guidance provided by the Agenda Working Group ensures that Halifax International Security Forum plays its part in shaping the coming year’s global security agenda.
Halifax International Security Forum is proud that the agenda presented to its participants each year is acutely relevant and reflects conversations that are happening in capitals around the world. In the cases where these issues are not yet top-of-mind for decision makers, Halifax International Security Forum is pleased to create those conversations that will gain attention and inspire international action.
In building the 2012 agenda for the November Forum, Halifax International Security Forum works to keep its finger on the pulse of international events that shaped the world in the past year. The Agenda Working Group meets throughout the summer months to discuss and debate ideas to be addressed head-on at Halifax in November. In so doing, Halifax International Security Forum endeavors to play its part in shaping next year’s international security agenda. Please join us by being an active participant.
