NATO: Rethink Realign React. Tackling security challenges together

The Foundation Institute for Eastern Studies together with international partners has realized the project entitled “NATO: Rethink Realign React. Tackling security challenges together” organized as part of the “Cooperation in the field of public diplomacy 2016” programme by Polish MAE.

The project was intended to promote the positive immage of Poland as one of the leaders promoting Transatlantic public debate and dialogue aimed at enhancing the security cooperation within NATO.

In 2016, Warsaw hested its first ever NATO Summit and therefore we were convinced that it was imperative to promote that occasion with a multidisciplinary publication on the most pressing issues affecting the Alliance at present and the Euro-Atlantic security in general.

We managed to gather six renowned specialists on security issues from six NATO countries and to create with them a publication on most pressing issues affecting the Alliance at present and the Euro-Atlantic security in general.

The publication was  presented at one-day events in six NATO capitals in June 2016. The final presentation took place at the annual Economic Forum in Krynica Zdrój that was held from 6th till 8th  September 2016.

The list of programmed events organized together with our partners:

  • 7 June – Rome: NATO Defense College in Rome, Italy
