World Border Security - Call for Papers


CALL FOR PAPERS
Abstract submittal deadline 31st July 2017

Co-operating towards Collaborating
Developing strategic international border management solutions

You are invited to submit your abstract for consideration by the Congress committee.

The border situation in the Mediterranean basin remains in a state of crisis. The Mediterranean is a main thoroughfare for mass migration from failed Middle Eastern and African states such as Syria, Libya and Somalia and the main route for West African human trafficking and migration.

The UN refugee agency reported that more than 1,000 refugees have drowned in the Mediterranean Sea by May 2017.

The smuggling of arms and illegal goods from North Africa also adds pressure on the governments and border security forces of the region.

European Mediterranean countries are in the frontline of the struggle to balance the managing of a humanitarian crisis with the need to secure Europe’s borders and prevent the infiltration of Europe by terrorists determined to use the crisis spread terror in Europe.

Security and the fight against drugs trafficking and THB continue to be major challenges for Asia, most of which is also destined for Europe.

The World Border Security Congress, supported by the International Security Industry Organisation, National Security & Resilience Consortium and International Association of CIP Professionals, is a high level 3 day event that will discuss and debate current and future policies, implementation issues and challenges as well as new and developing technologies that contribute towards safe and secure border and migration management.
