The conclusion of the nearly 100 conference participants was explicit:
Euro-ISME is well on its way to become an internationally recognized and influential society with an important range of tasks.
This year again, the conference theme was highly topical with regard to the number of conflicts actually going on all over the world - often with the use of armed force. Both, illumination of the academic research on conflict issues as well as disclosure of specific experience, acquired in numerous peacekeeping missions, were equally embraced during the two-day event
But the exchange was not limited to discussions carried on high level panels. In almost the same manner , the conversations during coffee breaks and lunch in the extraordinary well-equipped meeting rooms of the Royal Netherlands Navy were outstandingly suitable to deepen personal contacts and expand ISME’s international network.
