DSCU Prepares for the 2023 Security Cooperation Conference

Posted on: 3/30/2023

DSCU’s president, Dr. Celeste W. Gventer, hosted a consultative session March, 24, 2023, during which Security Cooperation stakeholders and scholars brainstormed ideas for the potential scope and themes of the 2023 Security Cooperation Conference. The discussion included a review of the results from the 2022 Security Cooperation Conference Report.

The consultative session deliberated the following questions: What topics should the Security Cooperation community explore? How should the scope and approach to the conference evolve? How can we best elicit continued dialogue and action following the conference? Results from this consultative session will inform the concept and planning for the 2023 Security Cooperation Conference scheduled to take place in October.

The 2022 Security Cooperation Conference, co-hosted by (DSCU) and The George Washington University Elliott School of International Affairs, brought together approximately 130 Security Cooperation experts from across the policy, practitioner, and academic communities. The conference examined the state of Security Cooperation today; the implications of recent global security trends and demands on the Security Cooperation enterprise; and whether, and how, the Department of Defense should adjust its approach to Security Cooperation in the future. The dialogue generated new thinking on frameworks, innovative approaches, and key challenges.
