  • About this conference


    The first of its kind in North America, the Halifax International Security Forum 2009 was created to address the 21st century's most pressing security issues. By bringing together policy makers and opinion makers from a wide range of disciplines, the Halifax International Security Forum paints a broad picture of international security issues.

    From nuclear proliferation to modern piracy to the war in Afghanistan, there has never been a time where our future looms so large on the horizon. In this compilation of the best speakers of the Halifax International Security Forum, we see experts such as Robert Gates and Bruce Jackson grapple with these issues, offering both caution and hope as we move towards the new year.

    About The German Marshall Fund


    The German Marshall Fund of the United States (GMF) is a nonpartisan American public policy and grantmaking institution dedicated to promoting greater cooperation and understanding between the United States and Europe. GMF does this by supporting individuals and institutions working on transatlantic issues, by convening leaders to discuss the most pressing transatlantic themes, and by examining ways in which transatlantic cooperation can address a variety of global policy challenges. In addition, GMF supports a number of initiatives to strengthen democracies. Founded in 1972 through a gift from Germany as a permanent memorial to Marshall Plan assistance, GMF maintains a strong presence on both sides of the Atlantic.
