50th Anniversary of the Harmel Report

Security and Defence
Date: Tuesday, 05 December 2017 10:30 - 17:00

Venue: Egmont Palace  |  City: Bruxelles, Belgium

ON INVITATION ONLY

The “Harmel Report” was adopted by the NATO Allies in December 1967. It took into account developments in the international environment and considered how the Alliance could become a contributor to international peace and stability.  This report, presented after the Suez Crisis, the Cuban missile crisis and the French withdrawal from NATO’s military structure, was a truly forward looking document. It has marked European security policies (such as the Ostpolitik) and is still influencing NATO’s strategy today. Since 1967, the security environment has drastically changed but, besides its impact on the European security architecture, the philosophy of the dual track approach recommended by the Harmel Report has retained all its relevance.
