A lecture by Ambassador Sarah MacIntosh CMG, Permanent Representative to the United Kingdom’s Delegation to NATO.

European security and the stability in the Euro-Atlantic area are at the core of NATO’s business. Together with other international organisations, such as the Council of Europe, the OSCE and the European Union, NATO has been actively engaged in building the unprecedented stability we have in Europe today.

In her lecture, Ambassador MacIntosh will discuss how NATO and the European Union cooperate on issues of common interest and are working side by side in crisis management, capability development and political consultations.
