HALIFAX INTERNATIONAL SECURITY FORUM RELEASES AGENDA
Annual Global Meeting Will Take Terrorist Threat Head-On

HALIFAX, NS—The Halifax International Security Forum released the agenda today for this year’s Forum to be held November 20-22 in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

The mix of on-the-record plenary sessions and smaller, off-the-record discussions address the consequence and implications of the terror attacks in Paris and cover a wide range of security and defense issues.

“With Paris top of mind for security officials and citizens around the world, the ideas generated at Halifax International Security Forum this weekend will be more important than ever,” said Peter Van Praagh, President of Halifax International Security Forum. “The agenda ensures that every angle of the common threats that democracies face are addressed head-on.”

The Halifax International Security Forum’s annual agenda has earned a global reputation for identifying the issues that security officials must confront today and into the future. In 2013, the plenary “Free Radicals With Return Tickets” addressed the urgent issue of Western youth joining radical terrorist organizations in increasing numbers and the potential for attacks in our own cities. This year’s agenda will be no different.

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.

The Agenda for the 2015 Halifax International Security Forum Agenda is available here.

The Halifax International Security Forum is an independent, non-profit, non-partisan organization based in Washington, DC. The Forum is made possible by the generous support from its partners, including the Government of Canada, and the Halifax Canada Club.
