In this panel, which occured during the Munich Security Conference, several speakers alternate themselves in the discussion about the importance of NATO, giving their opinion about the uniqueness of the organisation, and suggestions on how to make NATO more “up to date”. The second part of the video is a session of questions and answers which inspires further discussions about the topic.
