L’Università Link Campus in Roma (Via Nomentana 335),  l’Istituto Gino Germani di Scienze Sociali e Studi Strategici e l’International Centre for Defence Studies organizzano un interessante convegno di Studi il 30 giugno p.v.

Di seguito il programma:

This one-day conference will be held on Monday 30 June 2014, from 9:30 to 17:30, at Link Campus University (Via Nomentana 335, Rome). It is co-organized by Link Campus University (Rome), the Gino Germani Institute for Social Sciences and Strategic Studies (Rome) and the International Center for Defense Studies (Tallin).

The event will be held in English, under the Chatham House rule, and will involve a group of 50 experts from European and Italian government agencies, universities, think-tanks, research centers and the business community. The conference will explore the strategic implications of the Ukraine crisis for European security and for the future direction of NATO and the transatlantic security relationship.

The objective is to generate insights that will be useful for government and defense industry policy-makers ahead of the NATO September 2014 Summit. Panel discussions and brainstorming sessions will address critical questions such as the following:

1) Should the West rethink European Security after the Ukrainian crisis?

2) What are the implications of the Ukrainian crisis for NATO’s mission, purpose and ambitions? What should be NATO’s strategic focus in the future? Is it time for NATO to rethink its global role and refocus on European security?

3) What are the lessons for the EU? What are the implications of the Ukrainian crisis for CSDP and the relationship between European defense and the transatlantic security relationship?

4) Does NATO enlargement have a future and does it remain desirable?

5) How should Europe construct a strong defense and deterrence framework for the future?
