We would like to invite you to the presentation of the publication:

The 70th anniversary of NATO establishment, happening alongside the 20th anniversary of Polish membership in the Alliance, will be a an opportunity to talk about the great changes that both the Polish Army and NATO itself underwent, in particular considering how much its mission changed following the collapse of the Iron Curtain. The role played by NATO in providing security in Europe is unquestionable, therefore the project will also consist of a series of debates focusing on the changes in structure and goals that the Alliance will have to go through in the foreseeable future.

Copies of the report will be available for participants.
