Unfortunately, due to the developments regarding the COVID-19 pandemic in Romania, the National University of Political Studies and Public Administration has decided to postpone the Bucharest Security Conference (BSC) until the spring of 2022.

For BSC, aiming to consolidate its network of experts on security and defence, it was felt that meeting each other in a physical format is one of the key ingredients for a successful conference. The current developments regarding the COVID-19 pandemic could not provide sufficient certainty about the feasibility of a hybrid event, gathering both in-person and online interventions.

With this in mind, we will continue to monitor closely the developments of this situation and keep everyone informed about the new dates for the sixth edition of the conference.

We will organize however an online workshop on the same date, aiming to analyze the new strategic and geopolitical environment in Central and South-Eastern Europe, under the impact of the COVID 19 pandemic.
