It aims at fostering the awareness of NATO’s role, activities and organization as well as at increasing the understanding of the capabilities and the restrictions that shape the decisions of NATO Member States in matter of collective defense. Moreover, as far as the main theme of the simulation will be NATO’s role in the new Mediterranean geopolitical asset, we would like to generate awareness of NATO’s activities with the partners in the broader region, especially the Mediterranean Dialogue Countries that will be included in the simulation, but also about the main challenges to the euro-atlantic integration and to the postconflict peace building operations.
