In both the Strategic Compass and the Strategic Concept, the European Union (EU) calls for high resilience in civil and military defense. NATO concurs.
“Persistent conflict, fragility and instability in our European neighborhood undermine our security and provide fertile ground for strategic competitors and terrorist groups to gain influence, destabilize societies and threaten our security.” This is the phrase agreed upon by the EU and NATO in a joint statement. It demonstrates the importance of civil and military defense. This perception has also found its way into the minds of various European government leaders. Consequently, the Russian war of aggression against Ukraine gave Austria cause to rethink its ten-year-old security strategy.
The Federal Republic is also working on such a strategy. But what should it look like? What is our security situation, our crisis resistance and our resilience? These are precisely the questions that a pre-event at the Berlin Security Conference 2023 (BSC) on June 5 aims to address. The panel discussion will discuss the current state of security in Germany and the measures being taken at the federal and state levels to ensure that Germany is able to cope with crises, catastrophes and wars and to maintain governmental and societal functions. Among others, Nathanael Liminski, Head of the State Chancellery of North Rhine-Westphalia will speak.
