ExCeL London will host the Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict from 10-13 June 2014. Foreign Secretary William Hague will co-chair the summit with Angelina Jolie, Special Envoy for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees.
ExCeL's International Convention Centre will stage working-level meetings on 11 June and ministerial-led sessions on 12 and 13 June. There will be a large accompanying programme of events alongside the formal meetings, which will provide a showcase of successful programmes and policies from around the world. These events will include film showings, performances, exhibitions and panel discussions and will be open to the media, civil society and the public, as well as Summit participants. British Embassies and High Commissions from around the world will also host events to coincide with the Summit.
James Rees, Executive Director, ExCeL London, said: "We are delighted to open the doors of London's International Convention Centre to welcome the dignitaries and delegates attending this historic event. We recognise the significance of this global subject matter and, as demonstrated by the World Islamic Economic Forum and G20 London Summit, when something this important needs to be debated ExCeL and London are the number 1 choice."
