GLOBSEC has the pleasure to announce that the 17th edition of our flagship event GLOBSEC 2022 Bratislava Forum will be held on 2  4 June in Grand Hotel River Park in Bratislava, Slovakia. The forum will look for ideas on how to build a safer and more resilient world. Therefore, the discussion will be framed by current trends focusing on three thematical pillars:

  • Mobilise Support & Action for Ukraine and the Broader European Neighbourhood
  • Mobilise Resources of the West to Strengthen Resilience at Home
  • Mobilise Global Coalitions to Defy Authoritarian Powers

The GLOBSEC 2022 Bratislava Forum is the most important international strategic conference on the frontlines of the new divided world. Europe is witnessing an unprecedented conflict of the new post-war era following the illegal and unprovoked invasion of Ukraine.

Slovakia, due to its strategic geography, can play a crucial role in the security of CEE and the continent, providing an arena where all actors involved can assess these issues, and identify the most likely exit strategies to restore stability and predictability. The Forum will serve as a platform for CEE countries to call for action of the West and its democratic partners across the globe

“How can we make our democracies more resilient and better able to counter authoritarian regimes in a divided world?” We must take this as an inspiration for our discussions on the necessity of change, as only through change and transformation we will be able to overcome today’s challenges.

At the same time, while we foster cooperation at global level to counter the widespread rise of authoritarian powers, we must strengthen democracies to build resilience at home.

The global community has shown unparalleled unity in response to the war in Ukraine, we must keep this flame of unity and support alive as we navigate the uncertain times ahead. In this perspective, Slovakia, due to its strategic geography, can play a crucial role in the security of CEE and the continent, providing an arena where all actors involved can assess pressing issues, and identify the most likely exit strategies for restoring stability and predictability.

We will keep you posted about the 2022 Bratislava Forum. Meanwhile, stay tuned and have the dates saved to your calendar.
