Defence and Dialogue in Eastern Europe (#DDEE) will take place from July 31 to August 5, 2017 in Bucharest, Romania. The main purpose of DDEE is to prepare students and young professionals for a diplomatic career, both on practical and content-related aspects.

#DDEE represents a fantastic opportunity for young professionals to gain different skills in consolidating their diplomatic career, but it is also an important international effort for the formation of young generations. To better understand what the event is about, it represents the anniversary edition (fifth) of our famous flagship event Model NATO Youth Summit (MoNYS). But this edition is more than this. For all the details about the event, press here.
