In an attempt to contribute to the 2016 Warsaw Summit discussions, NISA Summer Session aims at bringing together young professionals and scholars from around the world to conduct a pre-Summit brainstorming session where the participants will focus on the issues relevant to NATO’s Warsaw Summit agenda, including NATO’s ability and readiness to respond to the crisis situations in its closest proximity, among others. How prepared is NATO to cope with regional security challenges? What are the existing toolkits and policy directions? What should be the most tangible policy prescriptions in regard to each conflict situation? These and many other similar questions will guide the discussions, at the end of which the participants will come forth with set of policy recommendations for the 2016 Warsaw Summit.
This event will involve notable academics and practitioners from governments, international institutions and think tanks as well as graduate students, researchers, early to mid-career academics, experts and practitioners, interested in international relations, international law, politics and economics, including in issues related to Euro-Atlantic area.
