Kiel Conference 2016

The Institute for Security Policy at the University of Kiel and the Centre of Excellence for Operations in Confined and Shallow Waters host a symposium that addresses current and future maritime security challenges. The Kiel Conference discusses their potential geostrategic, political, legal, military, economic or technological impacts with representatives from military, academia, politics and industry.

The format is designed to concentrate on a different geographic focus area each year.
