Event: NATO 2030 – What Security For Central Europe?

Conference in Warsaw on 13 December 2022

1 December 2022

Future-oriented policy debate on resilience. Current security architecture discussed among CEE stakeholders: civil society organisations, governmental officials, NATO representatives, journalists and policy advisers.

In Warsaw on 13 December 2022, we discussed different elements of security that are often overlooked—business and societal resilience, strategic autonomy, and gendered aspects—to provide insights into how the NATO 2030 initiative could be further bolstered. The event will be in discussion with a series of three solution based articles related to the NATO 2030 initiative to be published in high-impact media in one national language in CEE and in English, with a podcast commentary.
