5th Annual Hemispheric Security Conference

This is a past event.

Friday, May 22 at 11:00am to 12:30pm


Florida International University’s 5th Annual Hemispheric Security Conference (HSC) will be held online May 18 - 22. Hosted by the Jack D. Gordon Institute for Public Policy and the Kimberly Green Latin American and Caribbean Center, the annual security conference will stream live and be available in English, Spanish and Portuguese.

For the past four years, the HSC has been a successful daylong conference at FIU, bringing together over government representatives, academics and industry leaders. This year’s HSC has evolved into a series of virtual discussions on the most prevailing security threats facing the Western Hemisphere.

The conference is free and open to the public. For more information and to register for the 5th Annual Hemispheric Security Conference, please visit
