Through a security lens, the first panel will discuss some topics such as if there is a common threat agenda between the North and the South Atlantic? How is NATO able to foster cooperation between the two spaces? Is the new strategic concept of the Alliance considering the strong dynamics of the international security agenda?
After a year and a half of economic stagnation because of the COVID19 pandemic, the efforts made in the reactivation plans have encountered an added obstacle: the energy crisis.
