YATA Germany: Call for Applications

A NEW NATO FOR NEW CHALLENGES?

NATO’s Future: Call for Applications

On November 14, the German Atlantic Association, the Federal Academy for Security Policy, and the Embassy of the United Kingdom in Berlin co-host an international conference in Berlin addressing the outcomes of the NATO Summit in Warsaw 2016 against the background of rapid changes in the alliance’s security environment. Supported by the Press and Information Office of the Federal Government and NATO, high-ranking politicians, diplomats, military officials, and representatives from academia and civil society, will discuss the implementation process as well as future challenges to the alliance.

In order to foster the understanding of security politics, to establish an international dialogue among the younger generation, and to connect emerging leaders from NATO member and partner countries with senior decision-makers, YATA Germany will host a seminar from 12 – 14 November 2016 focusing on key issues of transatlantic security. In an open and competitive call for panels, the members of YATA Germany chose three topics on the basis of their ideas and expectations through the lens of NATO’s future:

1. “How to deter digital warriors? NATO and the cyberspace”
2. “In for the long run? NATO’s future role in crisis management”
3. “Enlargement, enablement, entrapment? NATO’s future approach to cooperative security”

To each session, senior political and military experts will be invited to discuss with the group the ideas and recommendations of young scholars and experts in the field.
