Past Event


TRENDS Research & Advisory, Hedayah and Friends of Europe convened a one-day roundtable in Abu Dhabi, U.A.E, for the launch of the report Debating Security Plus Report (5th Edition). The Report is a result of the Debating Security Plus 2017 aunique global online brainstorm that yields concrete recommendations in the area of security and defence. Gathering several thousand participants around the world, it is the only platform that permits a truly global whole-of-society consultation providing innovative recommendations for the world’s diverse security threats.

The Report provides Top 10 Recommendations to address practical policy goals and shifts in security thinking, underpinned by a realistic roadmap for implementation. Within this framework, the Roundtable event will bring together local experts to discuss Recommendation #6, which states “think small to prevent and counter-radicalization strategies.” And Recommendation #10, which states “all-inclusive approach to development, defense and security issues.”
