Shaheen Joins Congressional Delegation to Munich Security Conference

February 18, 2022

(Washington, DC) – U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) will join a bipartisan Congressional delegation to attend this weekend’s Munich Security Conference (MSC). The MSC is widely considered the world’s leading forum for international security policy. The conference is a “marketplace of ideas” where initiatives and solutions are developed and opinions are exchanged. It also provides a venue for diplomatic initiatives and ideas to cooperatively address the world’s most pressing security concerns.

Shaheen will participate in a panel entitled, “A Sea Change? Regional Order and Security in the Indo-Pacific,” as well as other conference meetings and events.

“I’m proud to be part of this bipartisan, bicameral delegation to engage with leaders from around the world about the most pressing security situations facing our global community,” said Shaheen, a senior member of the Senate Foreign Relations and Armed Services Committees. “As the Ukraine-Russia crisis escalates and as we watch an increasingly expansive China take hold, convening this conference could not come at a more critical time. The Munich Security Conference is an important opportunity for leaders to not only address national security issues, but to forge relationships that we will rely on in the weeks, months and years ahead as we work together to maintain the stability of our world order. It’s refreshing to participate in the Munich Security Conference in person and I look forward to the event getting underway.”
