The Stanley Foundation
Seeking a secure peace with freedom and justice, built on global citizenship and effective global governance.

Each year the Stanley Foundation convenes the Strategy for Peace Conference on a wide range of foreign policy issues with experts from the public and private sectors who meet in autonomous roundtables.

Each respective roundtable is focused on one of our three areas of current programming: climate change, human protection, and nuclear security. The roundtable discussion is intended to generate group consensus recommendations on the aspect of policy that is its focus.

2014 Concurrent Roundtables:
