World Border Security Congress 2018
2015 saw unprecedented crisis on a global scale, from the Middle East warring factions creating mass refugee movements across Europe, illegal economic migrants from Africa and Asia have created increasing challenges for the international border management and security community.
The rise of ISIS, Al Quaeda, Boko Haram, Hamas, Al Shabaab, the Taliban, and other terrorist groups create cross border threats to national and international security, whilst organised criminal gangs and human and drug trafficking groups exploit opportunities in our fragile international border security community, increasingly stretched by bigger challenges and reducing resources. No part of the world has been unaffected by such problems.
Controlling and managing international borders in the 21st Century continues to challenge the border control and immigration agencies around the world. It is generally agreed that in a globalised world borders should be as open as possible, but threats continue to remain in ever evolving circumstances and situations.
Advancements in technology are assisting in the battle to maintain safe and secure international travel. The border security professional still remains the front line against these threats.
The World Border Security Congress is a high level 3 day event that will discuss and debate current and future policies, implementation issues and challenges as well as new and developing technologies that contribute towards safe and secure border and migration management.
