NATO faces the most complex security environment since the end of the Cold War. That includes Russia’s brutal full-scale invasion of Ukraine, global terrorism, and the rise of China. Cyber threats, disinformation, and technological change add to the global uncertainty impacting the Alliance. The NATO Public Forum is the official high-level expert event of the NATO Summit, which will take place in Lithuania’s capital on the same days.

The Public Forum is organized by NATO’s Public Diplomacy Division, in close collaboration with Lithuania’s Eastern Europe Studies Center, the German Marshall Fund of the United States, the Munich Security Conference, and the Atlantic Council of the United States, and it will generate international debate at the Forum around the Summit’s themes. Participants from across the Alliance, from the expert community, academia, youth and the private sector will gather at the Public Forum in person at the Summit venue, and thousands will be online on both sides of the Atlantic.

The event is open for registration of online audiences from across the globe, who will be able to join the interactive discussions. The agenda will be published in the upcoming days on the Eastern Europe Studies Center‘s website.

The Transatlantic Security Initiative shapes and influences the debate on the greatest security challenges facing the North Atlantic Alliance and its key partners.
