NATO Expert Talk Series: Outcomes of the NATO Brussels Summit
Cyber-security, defence innovation and climate change in the military are all on the agenda for NATO’s Brussels Summit on 14 June. But with NATO placing unprecedented attention on the Indo-Pacific, what are the summit’s implications for Australia? What will NATO's defence innovations mean for the Indo-Pacific? How can Australia work with NATO to strengthen cyber defences?

To discuss these issues, please join us for a webinar event with NATO’s Deputy Assistant Secretary General for Political Affairs and Security Policy James Appathurai in discussion with USSC Lecturer and NATO Defense College Partners Across the Globe Fellow Dr Gorana Grgic.

Jointly presented by the United States Studies Centre (USSC) and NATO Public Diplomacy Division; this event is the latest in a series of talks with USSC and NATO experts in which they explore the challenges ahead of NATO and Australia and propose areas where furthering and deepening cooperation can offer solutions.
