CABSEC 15: Promoting Security Cooperation in the Caribbean Basin
This third annual conference will be formally hosted with the Common wealth of the Bahamas, and brings together ministers, chiefs of defence, law-enforcement officers, and diplomatic personnel to discuss the provision of maritime security in the region. The CABSEC forum is an impartial one that can make a meaningful contribution by addressing critical questions of maritime security and promoting the implementation of structures of cooperation within the region and sub-regions.
The nexus between transnational organised crime and extremist organizations continues to pose a global threat. Funding for extremist groups around the world, that continue to threaten U.S. and European interests, is connected to transatlantic illicit flows. This also remains a considerable risk for Caribbean Nations; the impact of a terrorist incident in any part of the Caribbean would decimate the region’s tourism sector that underpins many of the economies. Additionally, the social ills associated with illicit activity, such as knife and gun crime, continue to affect local communities on a daily basis.
