Welcome to the Leangkollen Security Conference 2021!
This year the Leangkollen Security Conference will be fully digital, and we are excited to present one of the best line-ups in the proud history of the Conference. During two morning sessions over two days, we will be addressing the broad and complex security landscape that the Transatlantic alliance is now facing.
The opening speech will be given by none other than the Secretary General of NATO, Jens Stoltenberg. He will be followed by former High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Federica Mogherini. On the second day of the Conference, we will be entering the digital sphere and we can proudly present Professor Francis Fukuyama to give the opening remarks.
Professor Thomas Rid will be joining us along with our own Foreign Minister Ine Eriksen Søreide. In addition, we have a wide range of excellent Norwegian speakers to contribute to both days of what hopefully will be fruitful and though provoking discussions.
The Conference will be held in both Norwegian and English. The Norwegian parts will be interpreted simultaneously to English.
