What are the diplomatic and military responses by the NATO and Nordic countries to changing security environment in Northern Europe? What is behind Russia’s assertiveness in the Nordic-Baltic region? This event is part of the Patuxent Policy Group symposia series that convenes once a year and publishes a White Paper on each symposium. Invited specialists discuss issues of importance relating to US foreign policy and national security. This invitation-only event is moderated by Ian Brzezinski from the Atlantic Council and it is hosted by The Patuxent Partnership (TPP) and the CSD. Limited space is available for a handful of observers. Please contact CSD firstname.lastname@example.org.
