Online Security Jam du 4 au 9 février

Avis aux amateurs, Security & Defence Agenda, think-tank de défense bruxellois, organise du 4 au 9 février une jam session en ligne, mobilisant des participants prestigieux autour de sujets comme le réchauffement climatique, l'Afghanistan ou les droits de l'homme. Voici une petite présentation de l'évènement, organisé avec le soutien de la Commission Européenne et de l'OTAN.


The online Security Jam – a chance to pitch some ideas to the top

You may not be able to pick up the phone and call the head of NATO or the European Commission, but at the beginning of next month you’ll have your chance to do the next best thing – and pitch your ideas - when you log on to the online brainstorm session, the Security Jam that’s being held online from 4th to 9th February.

Even better, the Security Jam will give you wider opportunity to make your voice heard – because not only will senior VIPs from NATO, the European Commission and host of major stakeholders be talking it up online, but you’ll also be able to share your ideas and security concerns with literally thousands of participants who, like you, will be contributing to a wide range of security-related discussions.

Climate Change, Human Rights and Development will be key topics, as well as core security areas such as Crisis Management, Piracy, Afghanistan, Relations with Russia & China etc…

Discussions will be moderated by key individuals, and there will be a guaranteed online presence of senior VIP figures such as:
  • Ambassador Kai Eide, United Nations Special Representative to Afghanistan
  • Carl Bildt, Swedish Foreign Affairs Minister
  • Josette Sheeran, Executive Director of the United Nations World Food Programme
  • José Manuel Barroso*, European Commission President
  • General Håkan Syrén, Chairman of the European Union Military Committee
  • Admiral Giampaolo Di Paola, Chairman of the Military Committee, North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO)
  • Jaap de Hoop Scheffer, Former NATO Secretary General
  • Ambassador Marc Perrin de Brichambaut, Secretary General of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE)
  • Paul Collier, Professor at Oxford University, author of 'The Bottom Billion'
  • Admiral Mark Fitzgerald, Commander of the Joint Force Command Naples & US Naval Forces in Europe
  • Mark Pyman, Director of the International Defence and Security Programme at Transparency International
  • Kenneth Roth, Executive Director of Human Rights Watch
  • Miroslav Lajcák, Slovak Foreign Affairs Minister
  • Fernando Perpiñá-Robert Peyra, Secretary General of the Club of Madrid, member of the NATO Group of Experts on new Strategic Concept

And the results? The best and most practicable ideas for improving global security will be put forward as important contributions to the new strategic concepts being prepared by NATO and the EU, both of which are official supporters of this highly original event.
