Visit of the College of Europe in Natolin

On 23 April 2024, the Baltic Defence College (BALTDEFCOL) was happy to host the annual visit from the College of Europe in Natolin staff and students as part of their study trip to the Baltic Sea Region. The former BALTDEFCOL faculty member, Dr Andriy Tyushka, headed the delegation, along with the other faculty members of the College of Europe in Natolin.

The guests were welcomed by the Dean of BALTDEFCOL Dr (hab.) Zdzislaw Sliwa who provided a brief overview of the BALTDEFCOL. He was followed by presentations given by BALTDEFCOL Department of Political and Strategic Studies members—Dr Viljar Veebel, who gave an overview of the Baltic Security Situation and Dr Dumitru Minzarari, whose presentation concentrated on Russia’s strategic intent, logic and actions.

These presentations complemented very well the overarching theme of the study trip—“Europe at War: Russia’s War of Aggression in Ukraine and the State of Defence, Deterrence and (In) Security in the Nordic-Baltic area”.

The College of Europe in Natolin was established in 1992 at the time of the reintegration of the European continent after the fall of the Iron Curtain. The curriculum at Natolin ranges from EU politics, law, economics and international relations to European history and the EU relations with its neighbours.
