What Military Capabilities Does Europe Need?
Hike

Monday, 29 August
120 minutes
English
First come first serve

The chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan is only the latest example of Europeʼs lack of essential military capabilities and its dependence on the USA. As a consequence of the Russian war of aggression, European countries are now increasing their military spending. But will that be enough after decades of neglect, and which capacity gaps should be addressed in the short and long run? //INFO: Bring suitable shoes for hiking, water and outdoor clothing. Circular hiking trail Alpbacher Heimatweg. In case of heavy rain, the session takes place at Feuerwehrhaus.
