The World Border Security Congress aims to promote collaboration,  inter-agency cooperation and information/intelligence sharing amongst border agencies and agencies at the border to better engage and tackle the increasing threats and cross border security challenges that pertain in today’s global environment.

Border agencies and agencies at the border  can benefit from the ‘Closed Agency Only Workshops’ with a series of behind closed door discussion and working group opportunities.

This years provisional Closed Agency Only Workshop topics include:

Ensuring international funding/support reaches the hotspots
Moderated by the International Organization for Migration (IOM)
Poor border management in one country has immediate impact on its neighbours especially in parts of Africa and Central Asia. Helping poorer countries struggling with border management issues is therefore an act of enlightened self-interest. Ensuring the funds available reach the border hotspots is essential.

Information Exchange – the way forward
Moderated by the Security Technology Centre, Ministry of Interior, Spain
Everyone agrees that the sharing information is essential for secure borders. How do we implement the systems and the trust to make this a viable?

Challenges in the Mediterranean
Moderated by the Organization for Security & Co-operation in Europe (OSCE)
“How are the multiple challenges faced by authorities in the Mediterranean being tackled?
As high levels of economic migration, THB and trafficking in cultural property continue or grow, can the enhanced use of ‘risk analysis capacities’ help us meet the challenges?”

By further encouraging such collaboration, cooperation and sharing of information between agencies, the World Border Security Congress aims to promote safer, more secure borders.
