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. With ELN members Jan Kavan (former Deputy Prime Minister, Czech Republic) and Lord Browne of Ladyton (former UK Defence Secretary) hosting the event with Marcin Zaborowski (Director of PISM), the symposium will provide an opportunity for both political leaders and analysts to engage with these issues and develop possible solutions to address the more difficult areas within NATO-Russia relationship. 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.
