Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken will deliver keynote remarks at the event “Hostage Diplomacy as an International Security Threat: Strengthening our Collective Action, Deterrence and Response” at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars at 1:00 p.m. ET on Tuesday, February 13, 2024.  Canadian Foreign Minister Melanie Joly will also deliver keynote remarks.  The Secretary’s remarks will be followed by two panels discussing hostage diplomacy as a threat to international security and how the international community responds to and deters state actors who arbitrarily detain individuals for diplomatic leverage.  The event is being held on the third anniversary of the Declaration Against Arbitrary Detention in State-to-State Relations.
