Riga Security Forum 2021

The most remarkable season of the year has arrived. The season where we engage via the Riga Security Forum 2021. Follow the latest updated at www.rigasecurityforum.liia.lv 

As the world is changing, we are also adopting new methods to keep the security debate alive. And alongside this beautiful autumn season, the Riga Security forum 2021 and its podcast sessions have arrived.

Building on the experience of two successfully completed events, the Latvian Institute of International Affairs, together with its project partners, is continuing to expand the format by developing high-level discussions under the title "Riga Security forum 2021". The project aims to gather key international policymakers, industry leaders, as well as military and civilian experts to discuss the events, trends, opportunities, and challenges that lie ahead for the international community.

Every week, from October until December, we will provide you with a brand new podcast session in audio and video format, both in English and in Latvian.

The podcast session content will be divided into two levels: the so-called "traditional" or "conventional" security dimension and "unconventional" or "new" security challenges. We will mark the end of the podcast sessions on November 30 with high-level face-to-face closing discussions in Riga, Latvia.

There will be many surprises this season! Stay tuned!

The project is the result of successful cooperation between the Latvian Institute of International Affairs, the NATO Public Diplomacy Division, Friedrich-Ebert Foundation, Riga City Council as well as the embassies of Poland, Canada, Spain, and France in Latvia.
