Government delegations have made the best out of the meeting by holding bilateral meetings with other delegations on the sidelines of the conference. While primarily an inter-governmental meeting, the summit is also attended by legislators, academic experts, distinguished journalists and business delegates. Prior to the first summit, Asia lacked a regional security framework like Europe.
Asia but came to nothing. In addition, the ARF was led by foreign ministers, leaving defence diplomacy and security cooperation in the region somewhat in want for a mechanism for defence ministers to interact. The Shangri-La Dialogue was conceived by the current IISS Director-General and Chief Executive Sir John Chipman in 2001 in response to the clear need for a forum where the Asia Pacific defence ministers could engage in dialogue aimed at building confidence and fostering practical security cooperation. During the 36th Munich Conference on Security Policy, Chipman ‘noticed Asian officials receiving short shrift’ and realised that ‘Asia needed its own defence institution at which defence ministers met and spoke’. Track One organization that “defence ministers needed if they were to have any chance at all of meeting multilaterally in a transregional format”.
Invitations were essentially focused on the members of the ASEAN Regional Forum in order to serve as a true regional security institution. Singapore was chosen as the location for the initial conference and with the Shangri-La Hotel as the venue. IISS could run the conference independently. The idea was brought forward to the Singapore Cabinet and was approved to be supported by the Ministry of Defence.
Initiated in 2002, it was an “unofficial defence summit'” which allowed defence officials to meet “privately and in confidence, bilaterally and multilaterally, without the obligation to produce a formal statement or communique”. The first summit was organized in six plenary sessions lasting for one and a half days. In 2003, the second summit expanded its invitation list to include chiefs of defence staff, and permanent or under secretaries of defence ministries. The agenda this year was organized around five plenary sessions supplemented by two simultaneous off-the-record ‘break-out groups’. In 2004, the invitation list was again further expanded to include participating countries’ most senior intelligence and the police and national security officials of some countries. The number of break-out groups was increased to three. The IISS Asia office was opened this year, which allowed IISS to organize the summit completely independently.
In 2005, Pakistan was represented for the first time. In 2006, the number of delegations had risen to 23 countries, with 17 being led by their respective defence ministers, and another 3 by deputy defence ministers or equivalent. The 2007 iteration of the Shangri-La Dialogue was a landmark meeting as it attracted top-level participation from China. Subsequently, in 2008, Vietnam and Myanmar elevated their representation to deputy minister level. In 2008, Laos was represented for the first time. The number of plenary sessions increased from five to six, while the number of break-out groups increased from three to six.
