OAS Getting Ready for 3rd Meeting of Ministers Responsible for Public Security


John Sandy, T&T Minister of National Security (left) host of the next MISPA, greets OAS Secretary General Insulza.

THE MEMBER STATES of the OAS decided to adopt a working format for the next Ministerial Meeting on Public Security, in Trinidad and Tobago (November 17-18, 2011) that would focus on the dialogue, through the exchange of experiences and lessons learned. This is intended to facilitate the active participation of high-level officials in discussions on topics set out in the draft agenda and to help strengthen ties of cooperation and collaboration based on the identification of strengths, promising practices, and priority needs in the area of police management, in accordance with the particular characteristics of each of the countries of the Hemisphere.

The schedule of the meeting has therefore been drawn up in terms of how the presentation of selected country initiatives could be structured within the time period available for each session. Thus, each head of delegation will assume responsibility for a 15-minute-long presentation to share his or her country’s national experience. These presentations will be the starting point for subsequent discussions, which in turn will be moderated by other heads of delegation or representatives of international organizations or agencies.
