The Crans Montana Forum has chosen Geneva (Switzerland) to organize its 20th Annual Session of the Homeland & Global Security Forum, which took place from October 24 to 27, 2018.

In this highly sensitive period marked by hardening and rejections, this Forum addressed every issue related to today’s major Global Security challenges and threats on Global Governance.

Being a multi-dimensional platform, it brought together Heads of State and Government, Ministers, International Organisations, Parliaments, Justice & Police Administrations and, obviously, Businesses coming from more than 100 countries.

In addition to high-level networking opportunities, this Forum encouraged international cooperation, sharing experiences, innovative responses and good practices.
