The International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) is pleased to announce that the 4th Regional Security Summit: The Manama Dialogue will take place from 7 to 9 December 2007 in Bahrain.
The Manama Dialogue is the primary security forum in the Gulf and facilitates the engagement of the national security and foreign policy establishments of the region with critical external powers. In 2007, the Dialogue will convene delegations representing 23 governments, to be led by defence ministers, chiefs of defence staff, foreign ministers, national security advisors, and other senior officials, who will interact with legislators, independent experts, academics and businesspeople.
As in previous years, the Dialogue will provide a unique forum composed of both on-the-record and off-the record events, informal meetings and briefings.
This summit will be held at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Manama. Attendance and participation is by invitation only. Press invitations will be issued at the beginning of November.
