The 10th IISS Global Strategic Review conference concluded with a session on the geopolitical effects of political activism. 'Assessing Global Risk' was the theme of this year's GSR which ran from 20-22 September in Stockholm.
'Who manages international security?' was the question posed to a panel from the IISS governing council in a special debate at the GSR.

It is 'more important to know what Ben Bernanke thinks about the world, than Chuck Hagel or John Kerry' argued Sanjaya Baru, IISS Director for Geo-economics and Strategy, in the GSR session on 'Geo-economics as a Driver of Strategic Change'.

The differing prospects for nuclear talks with North Korea and Iran and the difficulties of deterrence and enforcing the non-proliferation regime in the modern world dominated the GSR plenary session on nuclear risks.
The second day of the Global Strategic Review 2013 began with Sergei Ivanov, President Putin's Chief of Staff, offering a robust defence of Russia's policy on Syria.
