The Peace and Security Summit 2013 will be held at Clarion Hotel Stockholm, Fotografiska and Näringslivets hus in Stockholm. We expect most delegates will be accommodated at Clarion Hotel Stockholm.


WVF is responsible for the conference main agenda and for invitations. Currently efforts are being made to engage senior officials and political key note speakers.


SVF has overall responsibility for the planning and the practical and technical arrangements of the conference. The Royal Military Academy Karlberg is supporting with staff resources.

A project organization has been established that will engage WVF, different Swedish governmental organizations and other relevant actors, and a working plan for the project has been developed.
