The Art of Cooperative Security – A Geneva Security Debate


Cooperation is key to understanding ‘lasting’ security within and between states

International cooperation is often measured by our ability to avoid resorting to the use of bullets and bombs. But our speakers will argue that the complex labyrinth of transnational issues we now confront means our security depends on a new era of diplomatic cooperation — not simply for the sake of cooperation, but because this is what our individual national interests and the planet now demand.

In the wake of the Cold War international cooperation was announced to be the future of international politics, now many ask themselves does international cooperation have a future? If you look for a hopeful answer to this question, come join our in-person event to learn more about cooperative security from two seasoned diplomats and policy advisors. This is the second of many Geneva Security Debates to come.
