On 11-12 July 2023, NATO’s heads of state and government will meet in Vilnius Lithuania, at the NATO Summit, to address the challenges of the current security environment.
On this occasion, NATO is organising the NATO Public Forum, in collaboration with the Eastern Europe Studies Centre, the German Marshall Fund of the United States, the Munich Security Conference, and the Atlantic Council.
The Public Forum aims to promote a better public understanding of NATO’s policies and goals and the decisions to be adopted at the Vilnius Summit, through dialogue and engagement with a unique and diverse group of stakeholders, from Heads of State and Government and Ministers, to international security experts, opinion formers, academics, journalists and young people, in a series of panel discussions, debates, and interactive sessions on various topics on NATO’s agenda.
ICDS is an institutional partner for the NATO Public Forum. On behalf of NATO, International Centre for Defence and Security (ICDS) is kindly inviting you to join the conversation online, by registering to participate in the event:
