28.04.2008

The fourth PSSI's annual conference entitled “Asia-Pacific Security Challenges: Implications for Europe and the Atlantic Alliance.” will take place on September 7–9, 2008 in Prague.

Given the growing importance of East Asia to European policy deliberations as well as those of the Atlantic Alliance, PSSI Prague and Washington judged it appropriate to bring together high-level current and former policy makers, NGO representatives, journalists, academics and business executives to discuss the most pressing security challenges of the Asia-Pacific region and their global implications.
Among the featured speakers will be (at this writing), former President of the Czech Republic Vaclav Havel, Japanese Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs Mitoji Yabunaka, former Director of the US Central Intelligence Agency James Woolsey, Richard Lawless, Assistant to the Secretary of Defense for Alliance Security, IEA Executive Director Nobuo Tanaka and other distinguished participants.
