Broadcasts from Bratislava are watched at universities around the world

Broadcasts from the leading security forum in Central Europe are being watched at several universities in Europe and North America. Discussions are broadcasted live on the event’s website and it is possible to pose questions via Facebook.

The capital of Slovakia has become a centre of discussion on foreign policy and security these days. The 6th annual GLOBSEC Bratislava Global Security Forum presents the highest number of hot topics thus far, as many as 70 exclusive speakers and hundreds of guests from various areas of international relations: diplomats, analysts from important think-tanks, renowned journalists and representatives of public administration, international organisations and companies.

For instance, virtual participants will be able to watch Belarusian opposition leader Alexander Milinkevich, who has been awarded the Sakharov Prize, as well view a discussion between several Ministers of Foreign Affairs. There will be live broadcasts on discussions about the EU in today’s world, NATO and transatlantic relations after the Lisbon Summit, problems with funding defence, the Eastern Partnership Program of the EU and the Russia-US relationship two years after their reset. All of this will be streamed on the event’s website at www.globsec.org.

The organizers are also well aware of its educational dimension- with students and professors from cooperating universities able to follow the discussions during their classes. Classrooms at the University of Calgary, University of Pittsburgh, Warsaw School of Economics, Comenius University in Bratislava, University College of International and Public Relations Prague, Matej Bel University in Banská Bystrica and others will be able to virtually attend.

The GLOBSEC Bratislava Global Security Forum is organised by the Slovak Atlantic Commission under the auspices of the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Slovak Republic Mikuláš Dzurinda and in cooperation with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Slovak Republic, NATO Public Diplomacy Division, European Commission Representation in Slovakia and the International Visegrad Fund in the exclusive premises of the Kempinski Hotel River Park Bratislava.
