On December 15th, the ELN, in cooperation with the Polish Institute for International Affairs (PISM), will host a high level symposium in Warsaw examining attitudes in European NATO countries to the NATO Deterrence and Defence Posture Review (DDPR). Topics for discussion will include approaches to re-invigorating the NATO-Russia conversation, Ballistic Missile Defence, and policy options for reducing the number and role of non-strategic nuclear weapons stationed in Europe including in Russia.

The symposium will be preceded the evening before by a private dinner of senior east and central European political leaders who will come together to discuss similar issues and the role of the ELN in addressing them.
