On June 28-29, on the sidelines of the NATO Summit in Madrid, the Alliance’s leaders as well as international security experts will gather for the NATO Public Forum. Using a range of unique and engaging formats, the Public Forum will bring together stakeholders beyond the traditional security and defense community in a discussion about the future of the world’s most powerful political-military alliance.
In Madrid, the world will watch as heads-of-state and government, military leaders, and senior officials gather for the NATO Summit. This year’s summit could not come at a more critical time. Russia’s aggression, Ukraine’s fight for freedom, and the membership applications of Finland and Sweden are only some of the important issues on the agenda for the Summit and the Public Forum.
Hosted by four leading civil society organizations – the Elcano Royal Institute, the German Marshall Fund, the Munich Security Conference and the Atlantic Council in coordination with NATO, the Public Forum will host experts and decision-makers from around the globe to add further perspectives to the Summit.
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 Elcano Institute’s website.
