The independent resource on global security

Stockholm Security Conference

Stockholm Security Conference

The Stockholm Security Conference is an annual meeting that brings together key stakeholders to discuss global security challenges and how to respond to insecurity.

The conference gathers leading representatives from the political, academic, and business worlds, as well as civil society in a joint endeavour to explore the multiple dimensions of security in the world. The geographic representation is diverse, with participants from six continents.

In its second year in 2017, the Stockholm Security Conference was held under the heading of ‘Secure Cities in an Insecure World’ and in partnership with the City of Stockholm, the Swedish Riksdag and the Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency (MSB).

In 2017, SIPRI produced a short-film on highlights and voices from the conference. Watch this here on SIPRI’s YouTube channel. Livestreams of plenary sessions and individual interviews can also be viewed on the channel.
