We concluded the first leg of our series of Hewlett-sponsored seminars with a two-day, high-level meeting in Brussels on May 23-24, 2011, shortly after the deterrence and defence posture review launch in Berlin. The timing was ideal. Speakers included NATO Deputy Assistant Secretary General Jamie Shea and U.S. Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Nuclear and Missile Defense Brad Roberts. Among the more than 50 participants were many national representatives from NATO missions and senior NATO officials, demonstrating the project’s cumulated reputation. The Ambassadors from Estonia, France, Germany and Norway as well as the First Secretary from the U.S. Mission gave provocative presentations on NATO’s nuclear posture review alongside ourselves and other members of civil society.
