Helsinki Security Forum (HSF) is a high-level event, bringing together decision-makers, experts and influencers relevant to international security and to the changing theme of each year. The theme of 2022 is Northern European Security Redone.
HSF contributes to a global network of security conferences, while upholding its unique Helsinkian identity as an intersection of the Baltic Sea, Europe, and the Arctic region.
HSF contributes to society through making its main panel discussions available to the wider interested public. It brings together officials and decision-makers to discuss the pressing security issues of our time in a confidential setting.
HSF offers a venue for discussions between professionals working toward building a more secure and sustainable world.
HSF is organised by the Finnish Institute of International Affairs (FIIA), with support from the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland, Ministry of Defence of Finland, the Arctic Centre of the University of Lapland and the City of Helsinki. The President of the Republic of Finland, Sauli Niinistö, acts as the patron of the conference, and will deliver the event’s keynote speech.
