LIVE: 2020 Global Security Forum

Live coverage of this year's Soufan Center event from Mon., Nov. 16, to Thurs., Nov. 19.

For the second year in a row, Defense One is partnering with The Soufan Center to bring you live coverage of its Global Security Forum from Monday, Nov. 16, to Thursday, Nov. 19, 2020, this year as a virtual event. See the full agenda below. 

"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 year’s Forum will explore, through a series of fireside chats and panel discussions, the evolution of global security challenges posed by complex geopolitical realities that have been exacerbated by the global COVID-19 pandemic, including disinformation, extremism, and governance and legitimacy. In 2019, the Global Security Forum on ‘Security Challenges in the Era of Modern Disinformation’ explored the proliferation of modern disinformation and the serious implications on an increasingly interconnected world. 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."
