OBA advisor meets David Miliband
One Bermuda Alliance National Security advisor Jeff Baron met with former UK Foreign Secretary David Miliband at a Harvard University event.
Mr Miliband was part of a panel discussion on the future of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation at the university in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where Mr Baron is taking a course in crisis management.
Javier Solana, former Secretary General of NATO, was on the panel while Nicholas Burns, a former American ambassador and current professor at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government, was moderator.
“Dr Solana was a visionary leader of NATO, and I am proud to have served beside NATO as a United Nations peacekeeper in Kosovo,” said Mr Baron.
“I was honoured to speak with him.”
Mr Baron, who served with Bermuda Police Service for ten years, said the course he is taking is one of the top public policy programmes in the world.
“I take my role as Security advisor very seriously, and I will be bringing home ideas from some of the top emergency responders and academic faculty in the world,” he said.
“Bermuda faces considerable risks and challenges, especially in terms of crime, public safety, and natural disasters.
“It is critical that the Government is equipped to protect the public from these risks, and the current Government is not doing enough.”
