A Changing Middle East and Implications for NATO

calendarclock - (BST)

Is there a role for NATO in the Middle East over the coming decade?

The event looks at the current and forthcoming challenges in the Middle East, exploring flashpoints of confrontations, shifting rivalries and alliances, and trends that could shape the security landscape over the next decade. We try to identify ways to increase regional stability, including what role NATO may play in this context.
