Bucharest Security Conference 2016
The National University of Political Studies and Public Administration (SNSPA) organised, with the support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of National Defence and NATO Headquarters, a high level international conference on the 11th and 12th of November 2016 to address NATO’s historic decisions to respond to recent security developments and evolving threats on the Euro-Atlantic frontier.
The conference “A Changing Security Environment: New Threats, New Solutions” organised by the NATO Partnership Studies Center within the Department of International Relations and European Integration was a flagship event in the series dedicated to the celebration of SNSPA’s 25 years of existence as an independent university and school of government and governance.
The organizers intend to transform this event into an annual conference in Bucharest which will serve as a platform for analysis and debate, concerning the specific evolutions of the Euro-Atlantic security environment, especially on its frontiers, in Central and Eastern Europe and the Wider Black Sea Area, entitled “Bucharest Security Conference” (BSC).
The conference gathered high officials from the ministries of foreign affairs and defence from B9 member states, other West European states, USA and partner states from the Wider Black Sea Area, as well as experts and academics.
