European Liberal Forum expert seminar in Brussels moderated by CIR
Leadership and budget issues are playing a key role in discussions concerning European security. If we want to conduct joint military operations we need to have a will and money – said Hans van Baalen, MEP and vice-President of ALDE, during European Liberal Forum expert seminar in Brussels. There is also a need for strengthening cooperation between EU member states in the field of cyber security – added Pierre Chastanet, Deputy Head of Unit Trust&Security in the Directorate General for Communications Networks, Content and Technology of the European Commision.
The discussion regarding European defence and cyber security was moderated by Antoni Wierzejski, CIR’s expert.
European Liberal Forum is a political foundation of ALDE, a third biggest political group in the European Parliament. The long term goal of ELF Seminars on Defence and Security is to build a non-formal network of experts from different backgrounds. Through this platform, a regular dialogue between experts and decision makers will take place.
