Stockholm Security Conference 2021
On 8–11 November 2021, the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) will host the sixth annual Stockholm Security Conference (SSC 21). The theme of this year’s conference is ‘Battlefields of the Future: Trends of Conflict and Warfare in the 21st Century’.
The conference will explore how current developments in technology have opened potential new battlefields of the future and the means to prevent and mitigate associated risks. Additionally, the conference will examine to what extent the more traditional types of warfare are adapting to newly available means or providing non-traditional actors with new opportunities to have a bigger role.
SSC 21 will connect the battlefields of the future to the ones of the past through a live stream of the Ypres Peace Prize ceremony. This ceremony will close the conference on Thursday 11 November.
