On 19 June 2023, CSDS and CSIS organised an in-person event entitled “Transatlantic Defence in an Era of Strategic Competition: A Steadfast and Resilient Alliance?”. The event was sponsored by the NATO Public Diplomacy Division as part of a broader project called TIDE. The event sought to take stock of the conclusions of the 2022 NATO Madrid Summit and the Alliance’s Strategic Concept. With one eye on the July 2023 Vilnius Summit, the event brought together several experts from across the Euro-Atlantic region and more than 40 participants. Across two panel sessions, the event discussed the following questions:
1) From a European perspective, what are the realities of burden-sharing today and what more should European NATO allies do for defence?
2) How do Europeans view the US strategy towards the Indo-Pacific and how will this effect burden-sharing in NATO and partnerships in the Indo-Pacific?
3) What scope is there to enhance EU-NATO cooperation and in what concrete ways? What new forms of cooperation are required in the context of Russia’s war on Ukraine?
A recording of the event will be available in due course via our YouTube channel.
This project and event was sponsored by the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation.
