Join the CSIS International Security Program for the 2024 Global Security Forum on Wednesday, April 24, 2024. As CSIS's flagship annual security conference, the Forum convenes leaders from the defense and national security communities to discuss the top security challenges facing the country and the world. This year's conference will feature keynote discussions with General Charles Q. Brown, Jr., Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and the Honorable Avril Haines, Director of National Intelligence.

The theme of the 2024 Global Security Forum is "Gathering Strength in a Gathering Storm." Speakers will address how the United States can muster its strengths to counter multiple global challenges, posture for uncertainty, and prepare U.S. forces to deter and defeat aggression.

This year's Forum will also feature conversations with senior leaders from the government, military, private sector, and think tank community.

The conference will be held at CSIS headquarters and virtually. Further details on the schedule, participants, and registration will be updated below in the leadup to the Forum in April.
