This event was the first in a series of round-tables in the overall project on the state-level dimension of the BiH Security Policy. The aims of the round-table were two-fold: to provide domestic experts, tasked with the development of a state-level security policy with the necessary background and expertise to enable them to continue with the development of this document; and to provide a forum in which issues pertaining to these topics could be discussed.

The round-table comprised of two sessions: Foreign Policy Aspects of Security Policy, Economic and Financial Aspects of Security Policy. Each area was introduced by a number of presentations, after which an open and comprehensive discussion period on the raised issues was conducted.

The round-table determined the basic parameters of foreign, economic and financial policy as elements of a comprehensive BiH Security Policy, and arrived with full agreement concerning the conclusions that need to be an integral part of the security policy document.
