Conference Report. Forum on Homeland Security, the USA, Europe, and the rest of the world: new challenges for institutions and the private sector
The Geneva Center for Security Policy organised a Forum entitled Homeland Security, the USA, Europe, and the rest of the world on 7th and 8th October 2004. This forum brought together over 200 delegates of 37 different nationalities. Its goal was to compare American and European approaches to Homeland Security on several levels: conceptual, institutional, technological and commercial, and also to look at the situation in the rest of the world, working from a few concrete examples. This is probably the first time this question has been dealt with in such a global manner.
