Expand PANEL DISCUSSION: MODERN NAVY CAPABILITIES IN THE CONTEXT OF FUTURE A2/AD CHALLENGES

The panel session on maritime security will address in particular the role of the navy in countering Russia’s capabilities in the Baltic Sea and EU-NATO defence capabilities. Countries around the Baltic Sea face the greatest challenge to their security since the end of the Cold War. From deployment of warships with nuclear-capable cruise missiles, to fielding of Anti Access and Area-Denial air defense systems, Russia is testing the response and resilience of its neighbors. What role should the navies play in countering Russia’s A2/AD capabilities around the Baltic? Which naval systems should be developed by NATO and its allies to ensure credible deterrence and cohesiveness of the alliance?
