Established in 2018, the Global Security Forum is an annual international gathering bringing together a multi-disciplinary network of experts, practitioners, and policy-makers from government, security, academia, media, entertainment, international organizations, the humanitarian sector, the private sector and beyond to come together to discuss the world’s most pressing topics. This invite-only event provides a unique platform for international stakeholders to convene and offer solutions that address the international community’s leading security challenges.
The 2020 Global Security Forum will build on the successes of the previous forums.
In 2019, the Global Security Forum on ‘Security Challenges in the Era of Modern Disinformation’ explored the security challenges posed by the proliferation of modern disinformation and the serious implications the phenomena has on an increasingly interconnected world. The event underscored how the threat of disinformation is rampant globally and presents a whole-of-society challenge, impacting governments, communities, businesses, brands & media. The inaugural 2018 Global Security Forum on ‘Returning Foreign Fighters: Policies and Actions to Address the Threat and Protect Vulnerable Communities’ addressed the global challenge of returning foreign fighters. The event served as an opportunity for a multi-disciplinary network to come together to address the foreign fighter phenomenon and its effects on vulnerable communities and global security.
