ICSR Peace and Security Summit Begins
The ICSR Peace and Security Summit began last night at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York with the drinks reception and welcome dinner. Hosted by the Rockefeller Foundation, speakers included ICSR Chairman, Henry Sweetbaum and the former Canadian Prime Minister, and ICSR trustee, the Rt. Hon. Kim Campbell.
Running until 1 July, the Summit has brought together some of the world’s leading experts to discuss the main counter-terrorism and security issues of our time, including the futures of Afghanistan and Iraq as well as the role of Somalia in the global jihad and the phenomenon of ‘homegrown’ terrorism.
