World Border Security Congress

World Border Security Congress

Co-operating towards Collaborating

Developing strategic international border management solutions

Madrid, 20th-22nd March 2018

As we see the continued escalation of the global migration crisis, with mass movements of people fleeing the war zones of the Middle East as well as illegal economic immigration from Africa and elsewhere, international terrorism shows every sign of increasing, posing real threats to the free movement of people.

The world is expected to see a continuation of the migration challenges for the border management and security community, as little sign of peace and security in the Middle East is apparent and porous borders in Africa continue to provide challenges.

International organised criminal gangs and human and drug trafficking groups exploit opportunities and increasingly use the internet and technology to enhance their activities.

Controlling and managing international borders in the 21st Century continues to challenge the border control and immigration agencies around the world. It is generally agreed that in a globalised world borders should be as open as possible, but threats continue to remain in ever evolving circumstances and situations.

Advancements in technology are assisting in the battle to maintain safe and secure international travel. The border security professional still remains the front line against these threats.

The World Border Security Congress is a high level 3 day event that will discuss and debate current and future policies, implementation issues and challenges as well as new and developing technologies that contribute towards safe and secure border and migration management.

Countries represented – 40

Heads/Deputy Heads of Service – 14

Head/Deputy Heads of Dept/Division – 53

Senior Official/Project Manager – 38

Embassies – 12

We need to continue the discussion, collaboration and intelligence sharing.


The World Border Security Congress, supported by the European Association of Airport & Seaport Police, International Security Industry Organisation, National Security & Resilience Consortium and International Association of CIP Professionals, is the premier multi-jurisdictional transnational platform where the border  protection, management and security industry policy-makers and practitioners convene annually to discuss the international challenges faced in protecting borders.
