10:40 – 11:40 Weathering the Storm

A strategic area in Europe, the Black Sea and its extended region, plays a major role in global relations, as the playfield of geopolitical forces and battlefield of opposing interests. The security of this space has become increasingly complicated over the past decade, leading NATO to a substantial increase in its presence and activity in the region. New challenges coming from external actors (Russia, Iran, Syria), and from actors within the Trans-Atlantic alliance (Turkey) ask for a reassessment of the potential and vulnerabilities of the Black Sea region, and its impact on European security and defense.

14:10 – 15:40 Heading to the NATO Summit

The upcoming NATO summit will give the members the opportunity to take stock of the renewed threats to the Alliance, as well as to refine its answers to these threats. In the East and in the South a recalibration of responses and pro-active measure is needed, and so is a deeper look at some of the untraditional challenges. In the face of direct and indirect attacks from external actors, and of the coolness of relations between the two shores of the Atlantic, united action, more needed than ever, is increasingly difficult to be achieved.

14:10 – 14:40 Conversation on determining whether a United Western Action Still Possible?

Judy Dempsey, Senior Fellow at Carnegie Europe and Editor-in-Chief of its blog, Strategic Europe
and
Mircea Geoana, President of the Aspen Institute Romania

14:40 – 15:40 Maintaining unity in action

The current international context places numerous challenges to the unity and coherence of “the West”.  Internal and external strains are acting convergent to weaken the role of the trans-Atlantic community, to diminish its influence and power of attraction and, more practically, to diminish its joint action and outreach. A solution may come from reshaping current institutions and from instrumentalist of ‘the new generation challenges’: cyber-attacks, fake news, allowing their transformation into means of proper action, reinforcing the general state of international security.
