Cooperation to Counter 21st Century Maritime Domain Challenges

September 15, 2014 • 1:30 – 2:30 pm EDT

Please join us for an important discussion with senior naval leadership from three leading NATO countries as they discuss transatlantic naval cooperation and Alliance maritime challenges. From the Baltic and Mediterranean Seas to the South China Sea, how do nations confront these challenges at a time when national defense budgets are shrinking and operational demands are increasing? How do new operational requirements, like an increasingly ice-free Arctic Ocean, factor into maritime strategies? Following the outcomes of the recent NATO Summit, our three speakers will address how a network of navies works together to address current and future maritime security challenges.
