Defence and Dialogue in Eastern Europe (#DDEE) registrations are now officially open! The event organized by EADSociety will take place from July 31 to August 5, 2017 at JW Marriott Grand Hotel in Bucharest, Romania and will involve over 200 participants from all over the world with different backgrounds and of different generations.

DDEE is a series of events on two dimensions: theoretical (forum) and practical (simulation of NATO decision-making process and study visits). DDEE aims to raise awareness on the defence and security threats that are now developing in Eastern Europe.

The event will start with a Forum, where senior experts covering defence and security topics will debate on current topics of interest for the Eastern European neighborhood (Countering Disinformation, Enhanced Forward Presence, Cyber Security, Ballistic Missile Defence, Projecting Stability, NATO–EU Relations). The forum will settle the ground for debate on NATO’s current agenda by keynote speeches and panel sessions. The forum will emphasize the importance of NATO today and will raise awareness on the NATO’s role in the 21st century, its importance to national security and the role it plays in international relations.

The following days of the event will host the practical side of the event (Model NATO simulation) where young people from different countries will understand NATO values expressed through its decision-making process. This simulation also marks a special edition of the EADSociaty’s flagship event Model NATO Youth Summit.

DDEE represents a fantastic opportunity for its participants to consolidate different skills and it is an important step on the formation of young professionals’ career.
