Conference programme

Published on by Ghislain VACHEROT - updated on

The international Milipol network (Paris, Doha, Singapore, New Delhi) offers a series of high-level conferences at each event, bringing together national and international decision-makers, experts and researchers to discuss topics of interest to the internal security of states.

The theme of the Milipol Paris 2023 conference cycle is the Games of the XXXIII Olympiad, which France will host in 2024.

From November 15 to 17, 2023, Civipol, and IHEMI (Insitut des Hautes Études du Ministère de l'Intérieur) invite you to explore the opportunities and challenges posed by this extraordinary event through three perspectives: the different continuums mobilized by the games, the place and use of technologies in the games and finally the transformations that the games will bring to France and its territories.

All Milipol Paris participants can attend the Conference Programme for free. All conferences feature simultaneous translation.
