BSC 2021 – HYBRID FORMAT
The National University of Political Studies and Public Administration will organize on 19-20 November 2021 the sixth edition of the Bucharest Security Conference (BSC), with the support of the NATO Headquarters, the Romanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and the Romanian Ministry of National Defence. BSC continues to consolidate its network of experts on security and defence even in troublesome times, therefore the event will be online.
Participation is free, but by invitation only, and advance RSVP is required.
The event brings together experts from both the academic environment and practitioners in International Relations, to assess the most recent security evolutions in the Euro-Atlantic space, the new dynamics of the international system, and how the global power structure evolves under the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Nonetheless, the conference aims at sharing NATO and EU values in a changing international environment challenged by tendencies of a return to the national level and power politics.
The speakers will be NATO and EU representatives, prominent officials from defence and foreign affairs ministries from NATO member states in the B9 format, together with academics, NGOs, and mass media. This year, the conference will encourage discussions on NATO’s adaptability to a changing environment, the future of liberal democracies, 20 years since 9/11, the withdrawal from Afghanistan, informational warfare, etc.
