Venus in Arms promotes the first post-ISA2015 event that deserves attention for those of you interested in military transformation.
We suggest the following seminar: “Learning in Crisis: The Sources of NATO’s Institutional Memory” by Heidi Hardt (University of California Irvine), at the European University Institute (EUI), Florence, February 25.
The event will take place at Seminar Room, Villa Malafrasca (4.30pm), via Boccaccio 151, Florence. Here the map
Here below the abstract of the presentation:
With the conflict continuing in neighbouring Ukraine, NATO faces a security environment characterised by declining defence budgets but increasing demands. This talk will discuss preliminary findings from an ongoing study of how NATO – the world’s most active military organisation – retains institutional memory in crisis management. The study builds on recent elite interviews with more than 57 interviews with NATO permanent representatives, international staff and other officials.
See you there.
