WASHINGTON, DC – The 2015 Halifax International Security Forum will take place November 20-22 in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Now in its seventh year, the annual Forum features democratic leaders and thinkers who gather to address the most pressing international security challenges.

“We are proud that at the end of each calendar year, democratic leaders from around the world travel to Halifax to set priorities about international security into the new year,” said Peter Van Praagh, President of the Halifax International Security Forum.

The Halifax International Security Forum 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. The Forum is now the largest and most significant gathering in the world of democratic defense leaders committed to global security and prosperity.

The sixth annual Halifax International Security Forum took place from November 21-23, 2014, when 300 prominent individuals from over 60 countries convened to exchange ideas and insights about pressing global security issues. For a recap of the 2014 Forum, please click here.

Invitations to the November 20-22, 2015 Forum will be issued in the spring.

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