Munich Security Conference establishes a non-profit-making limited liability company

The Munich Security Conference (MSC), which until now has not had any legal form, will be transformed into the non-profit-making Stiftung Münchner Sicherheitskonferenz GmbH (Munich Security Conference Foundation). This is to ensure that a legal and organizational, internally and externally permanent structure is created for this globally most important forum for an independent exchange of ideas on current issues of foreign and security policy.

The MSC will continue to be led by Ambassador Wolfgang Ischinger, who has been the chairman of the forum since 2008.
“By establishing the non-profit-making Munich Security Conference Foundation, a limited liability company, we provide legal and permanent protection to the forum and its political independence. Also in the future, the Munich Security Conference is meant to create stimuli for the foreign and security policy of the 21st century, with particular emphasis on its contribution to dialogue and to the understanding of current issues of Euro-Atlantic security architecture,” Wolfgang Ischinger said.

About the Munich Security Conference:

The Munich Security Conference (MSC) is the globally most important independent forum for an exchange of views by decision-makers in the field of international security policy. Each year, it brings together senior figures from around the world to engage in an intensive debate on current and future security challenges. Besides the annual main conference in Munich, an additional event format, the MSC Core Group Meeting, has been organized by the Munich Security Conference since the year 2009. It offers a small and exclusive circle of participants an opportunity to discuss key issues of international security policy and to design possible sustainable solutions at changing locations all over the world.
