Atlantic Forum will be partnering with the Estonian Atlantic Treaty Association to host a North Atlantic Council (NAC) simulation on the 3rd and 4th of April in Narva, Estonia.
The topic of the simulation will be the recent developments in Libya, and a possible new mission. In 2011, a multi-state NATO-led coalition began a military intervention in Libya, ostensibly to implement United Nations Security Council Resolution 1973, under the name Operation Unified Protector.
In the ongoing violence in Libya continues to draw worries from the international community and has pitted two NATO allies, the Republic of Turkey and the French Republic against one another. The simulation allows participants to investigate the workings between NATO and the EU, a major stakeholder in the regional security of the Mediterranean, as well as giving insight in the difficulty of reaching consensus when two members of the North Atlantic Council have opposing interests. Two trainers from the Atlantic Forum Academy will be travelling to Estonia to guide the simulation.
