As the UK Government puts the finishing touches on its landmark Integrated Review of Security, Defence, Development and Foreign Policy – the most comprehensive reconsideration of British grand strategy since the Cold War – questions around NATO defence loom large.
NATO’s most recent SACEUR, General Curtis Scaparrotti (USA, Ret.) (in post between 2016-2019) will give his perspective on the strategic threats facing the Alliance in the European theatre over the coming years and the military capabilities and concepts required to meet them.
Rt Hon Lord Robertson KT will draw on his experience at the top of NATO to address the political and diplomatic challenges of steering the Alliance through a period of crisis and uncertainty.
