From 22-24 November 2019, Pansophico proudly helped to sponsor the 2019 Halifax International Security Forum (HISF) in Halifax, Canada — North America’s leading foreign affairs and defense conference.  This year’s annual forum brought together influential leaders from 80 countries, including White House officials, key Senators with foreign policy oversight, top U.S. and NATO military commanders, and leaders from the world’s democracies to discuss the most pressing issues facing the democratic world today.  HISF continues to lead the way in bringing together global decision-makers to address challenges to world democracies, and Pansophico supports HISF as one of the most important democracy-building entities in the world.  This year’s annual John McCain Award for Leadership in Public Service was presented by Cindy McCain to the People of Hong Kong.  See this year’s proceedings at
