Join Friends of Europe for its upcoming Security Policy Summit “A brave new world: Adapting to a changing security landscape”, that will be held on Thursday, 20 September 2018 from 09:15 to 13:15 in Brussels.
Taking place right after the 2018 NATO Summit and ahead of the 70th anniversary of NATO, this year’s summit is particularly timely to launch and promote new visionary ideas on the future of NATO, European defence and security, and current security developments shaking our world.
Will new security and defence capabilities currently being developed allow Europe to respond more effectively to external conflicts and crises and play a greater role in fostering peace?
Has Europe already lost the ‘arms race’ for the use of artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics for defence applications?
What changes does NATO need to embrace to be able to meet the security and defence challenges of the 21st century?
We are delighted that NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg has confirmed his participation in principle to share his vision on the future of the transatlantic alliance to face 21st century challenges. Jaap de Hoop Scheffer, NATO Secretary-General (2004-2009), Professor of International Relations and Diplomatic Affairs at the University of Leiden and Trustee of Friends of Europe, has also confirmed his participation.
