On 17 July 2014 г., Bulgarian Academy of Sciences was a host to the Round table about the crisis in Iraq. It was organized by the Center for national security and defense research - BAS and Sofia Security Forum.
Over 40 representatives from different governmental institutinans, NGOs and independant experts in the field of National and Regional security attended and discused the causes and the different scenarios for the crisis in Iraq and its reflection and impact to the other countries and processes. Special attention was given to the Iraq's crisis and its impact to the security in Bulgaria.
The discussion was made by Chatham House rules. The organization of such events provides the necessary expertises to the main authorities and decision makers which makes the decision management more effective and efficient. Such events like Round tables, Conferences etc. are a good practice to gather expertises, analysis and opinions.
