15 mei NATO in the Trump era
Event by Clingendael
Date: May 23, 2017
Location: Parkhotel, Molenstraat 53, 2513 BJ The Hague (16.30 – 20 hrs.)
On Tuesday, 23 May, on the eve of the NATO Summit in Brussels, the Netherlands Atlantic Association and the Netherlands Institute of International Relations Clingendael organise a debate on NATO in the Trump Era.
The NATO Summit on 25 May will be the first which will be attended by the new US president Donald Trump. In his first 100 days in office Trump has given contradictory signals about the importance of the Alliance. A constant factor in his statements, however, is the emphasis on the need for increased defence spending by many NATO member states. This subject will no doubt be on the agenda in Brussels, as well as the difficult relationship with Russia and the ongoing operations in the Middle East.
During this debate three distinguished experts from both sides of the Atlantic will shed their light on these subjects and discuss them with the audience.
– Ian Brzezinski (Resident Senior Fellow, Brent Scowcroft Center on International Security, Atlantic Council of the United States)
– Roland Freudenstein (Wilfried Martens Centre, Brussels)
– Luis Simón (Institute for European Studies, Free University Brussels and the Elcano Royal Institute)
