ELN-LIIA round table report

Ahead of the NATO and Biden-Putin Summits, the Latvian Institute of International Affairs (LIIA) and the European Leadership Network (ELN) convened forty senior military and civilian experts from Russia and NATO countries to progress the discussion on NATO/Russia military-to-military dialogue. They considered:

How could senior NATO-Russia military-to-military dialogue produce practical and pragmatic measures to increase predictability and reduce the risk of military incidents at sea, in the air and on land escalating to the level of military conflict?”

The output of the round table can broadly be grouped into three areas:

  • exploring the risk;
  • proposing pragmatic ways ahead;
  • and priority areas to be addressed.
