Advisory board

The members of the ELN Advisory Board hail from every major country and region in the Euro-Atlantic area. They bring with them not only distinct understanding of developments at the global and European level, but also deep knowledge about regional and national idiosyncrasies which are vital to understand and influence attitudes on specific foreign and security challenges. Beyond advising on the directions of ELN activities and research, they offer unique access to the decision-makers and other groups which the ELN aims to reach, and are active as respected ELN voices in their national debates.
