75 Years of NATO: What to Celebrate in Washington This Summer?

May 17, 16:15-17:45

The next NATO Summit will take place in Washington on July 9-11. It will be an important moment to look at how well NATO has managed to link capability planning with operational planning. At the same time there is one key unanswered question from Vilnius, namely, how to proceed with Ukraine’s application to join NATO? Has NATO managed to implement the decisions of Madrid and Vilnius? How has NATO fared in light of the war in Ukraine?
