Public Record - 2009 Halifax International Security Forum (Part 8 of 8)


The Halifax International Security Forum is held in Halifax, Nova Scotia, November 20–22, 2009. This conference is the first of its kind in North America and addresses the top global security challenges facing the transatlantic community.

In this final panel discussion of the forum, entitled “What Should NATO Stand For?,” panellists discuss whether the North American Treaty Organization (NATO) is able to produce a new strategic concept. The panel also focuses on the following question: is NATO ideologically divided on the values that inform strategic decision-making? The panellists are Bruce Jackson (founder and president of the Project on Transitional Democracies), Pieter De Crem (Belgian Defense Minister), Pauline Neville-Jones (the national security advisor to the leader of the opposition, United Kingdom), and Christian Schmidt (Ministry of Defense, Germany). Later, the speakers field questions from forum attendees.
