For several years now, the transatlantic and european security architecture (more specifically NATO and the European Union) has been undergoing numerous upheavals and has been confronted with multiple challenges: questioned by the presidents of its member states; tensions with China and Russia; interrogations regarding several missions in the Mashriq; and the failure of safeguarding a stable Afghanistan. In addition, in the fall of 2021 and then in the spring of 2022, new governments will emerge in both Germany and France, and it will become necessary to evaluate their position with respect to NATO and to the strengthening of the European military capabilities. The objective of this seminar is to address, in light of these circumstances, through a Franco-German prism, the ongoing reconfigurations within the transatlantic defense structure.

The events bring together around 45 participants and 15 speakers.

Dates : June 2 and 3, 2022

Location : Berlin


Speakers (non-exhaustive list):  lieutenant general Markus Laubenthal (Deputy Inspector General of the Bundeswehr), Dr. Claudia Major (SWP), ambassador Claude-France Arnould, ambassador Anne-Marie Descôtes, ambassador Ekkehard Brose, General Eric Autellet, ambassador Mara Marinaki.

During an intensive two-day seminar (from Thursday to Friday), these issues will be addressed in a pleasant setting that encourages exchanges. You will not only have the opportunity to listen to contributions from qualified and recognized French and German speakers, but you will also be able to discuss your ideas and thoughts with them in a confidential setting. The expert’s seminar is subject to the Chatham House Rule, in order to guarantee a free and fruitful exchange of opinions and ideas.
