"Session One focused on the global and regional strategic environment, painting a picture of the security concerns of developing nations at the cusp of the new millennium. Session Two provided a comparative examination of the interests in the recently-formed Indian Ocean Rim Association for Regional Co-operation (IOR-ARC). Session Three looked at the prospects for international and regional co-operation, and examined some issues of mutual concern for security: the proliferation of landmines and small arms, de-mining strategies, the flow of illegal drugs, and the inter-relationship between these and other forms of criminal activity. The potential for bilateral co-operation was the focus of Session Four, with particular emphasis on maritime and other, broader, forms of collaboration, including reform of the United Nations and the revitalisation of the Non Aligned Movement (NAM). The workshop concluded with an identification of areas of mutual concern which will form the basis of a research agenda for future meetings of this kind."
