The 2014 Security Jam will bring together the full range of stakeholders and experts to address the new reality and develop concrete policy recommendations to address the key challenges.
To be held over 54 hours, from October 14-16, 2014, the Security Jam will be a catalyst for creative thinking by national, UN, NATO, and EU policymakers, experts, NGOs, industry representatives, soldiers, journalists, scholars and opinion-leaders.

The Jam is organised into six forums:

1. The new global balance
What do the U.S. pivot to Asia and declining Western influence mean in economic, diplomatic, and security terms for powers such as Russia, China, India or Turkey? Is China showing renewed inter-est in Europe as a security player? What impact will NATO’s Afghan draw-down have on regional peace?
2. The EU as a global security broker
Is the EU a credible security provider, and if not, what are the elements needed to reinforce its global status? Have Europeans agreed on common security interests or will differences in member states’ foreign policy vision continue to plague the Union? What lessons can Europe draw from its humanitarian and development experience?
3. NATO’s role 2025
Can alliance members maintain their own security with-out NATO? After the NATO Newport Summit, are the allies more prepared to react robustly to threats? Recent tensions with Russia have led to a renewed faith in the organisation as well as public debate in Sweden and Finland about joining NATO, but is that only temporary?
4. Cyber-security and cyber-defence
What can governments and citizens do to ensure the internet remains a free yet secure global common and continues to contribute to economic and societal development? Can international rules be enforced let alone be agree upon? How much freedom and privacy are citizens prepared to forgo in the name of security?
5. Case study—Ukraine and Russia
Do Europeans, Americans and Russians suffer from a profound cultural misunderstanding or is this crisis all about realpolitik? How far has Russian domestic pres-sure influenced the conflict? How has propaganda affected people’s perceptions of the conflict?
6. Case study—Syria
With ISIL spreading terror both Syria and Iraq and the resulting coalition to defeat it, what role can the UN and the Security Council play, and is it even possible the Gulf Cooperation Council or the Arab League could eventually broker a deal?
