The Munich Security Conference 2024: The 60th Munich Security Conference is expected to be the most diverse yet with well over 100 countries represented with official delegations. In line with its efforts over the last couple of years, the MSC has placed special emphasis on including countries and actors from the so-called “Global South” in all aspects of the programming in order to ensure the most inclusive debates possible. Against this backdrop, the MSC 2024 will offer a unique opportunity to search, find, and promote solutions to shared security concerns.
On Friday, the conference’s main program will kick off with a focus on global security challenges, including the future of global governance and multilateralism, democratic resilience, climate security, nuclear security, migration, and the future of AI. Discussions on the state of the international order as well as regional conflicts and crises – ranging from Ukraine to Sudan and the Middle East – will be at the top of the agenda on Saturday. On Sunday, the conference will close with discussions on Europe’s role in the world and its relations with partners. As always, a detailed agenda of the MSC 2024 will only be published shortly before the conference begins.
