NATO and Partner Countries discuss
New Challenges to Global Security

About 200 experts from NATO and partner countries gathered in Brussels
on 28 November 2011 for the first conference on “New Challenges to
Global Security” organised by NATO’s new
Emerging Security Challenges Division.

“Many of these challenges cannot be kept at bay by the mere threat of military retaliation; and many require a much stronger focus on prevention and on enhancing the resilience of our infrastructure”, said the head Emerging Security Challenges Division, Assistant Secretary General Gabor Iklódy, welcoming participants from NATO and partner countries and from academic institutions.
