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.
