2020 Bled Strategic Forum

Bled Strategic Times

Bled Strategic Forum strives to give a voice to differing positions, views and understandings of the topics that require the attention of the wider international community.

In 2017, BSF offered another platform to give a voice to differing positions – the official gazette of the BSF Bled Strategic Times (BST).
