p360 300x250NATO Partnerships 360 Symposium is a new and innovative venture, held for the first time at the Federal Academy for Security Policy (BAKS), Berlin, Germany, from 30 January to 1 February 2018.

This was the first time that NATO's Allied Command Transformation and International Staff Political Affairs and Security Policy Division co-hosted such an event, in a “one NATO” spirit of political-military cooperation.

The event brought together civilian and military representatives from Allies and all partner nations. Envisaged as a participative workshop focused on the future evolution of NATO’s partnerships policy, it had a particular focus on the main expectations and outcomes for the 2018 Brussels Summit.

The Federal Academy for Security Policy venue permitted the organization of a number of smaller break-out groups where participants contributed their thoughts and brainstormed issues and policy approaches.

Participants ranged from Allied and partner civilian and military delegates working on NATO partnerships and cooperative security policy at subject matter expert level, including from delegations as well as from capitals.
