Europe in 2030: strengthening public-private cooperation in hybrid crises

Event Reports

Peace, Security & Defence

Increasing digitalisation, newly emerging (disruptive) technologies, stronger geopolitical tensions and global challenges such as climate change impact the nature, origin and handling of threats.

Friends of Europe’s third tabletop exercise presented over 40 senior experts from the EU, NATO, as well as the private and civil society sectors, with a no-fail environment to address the impacts of future developments and to reflect on what kinds of legal and policy updates will be required as new challenges unfold.

“Preparing our societies for this immersive age is vital for maintaining both democracy and the rule of law,” noted Chris Kremidas-Courtney, Senior Fellow at Friends of Europe.

This year’s scenario, set in the year 2030, once again highlighted the need for a coordinated public and private sector response when addressing hybrid threats. Friends of Europe’s latest report shares the key findings of the exercise and provides recommendations for both sectors, detailing steps to improve cooperation and adequately prepare Europe for the world in 2030.
