“The spirit of our endeavour is, To strive, to seek, to find and not to yield”

Alessandro Minuto-Rizzo, President

The conference is organised in cooperation with the NATO Public Diplomacy Division, the NATO Defense College, Philip Morris ItalyFondazione Compagnia di San Paolo, and MBDA Italy.
Every year since 2014, as part of its project Strategic Balkans, the Foundation dedicates a high-level event to the most relevant trends unfolding in the Western Balkans and South Eastern Europe, including the Black Sea region.
Area at the center of an arc of crisis that stretches from Ukraine to the Middle East, and whose security and stability are “vital” to the Euro-Atlantic community, as stated by NATO Secretary General during his tour in the region these very days.
Over 3 panels, 18 regional specialists, will address:
– the Alliance’s and other relevant IOs’ work of crisis prevention and peace consolidation;
– the fight against disinformation and organised crime;
– approaches to support resilience recovery and foster the region’s integration process.
The working language will be English and the event will be live-streamed as well.
