MajGen Andrzej Falkowski, Polish MilRep, visits the NDC
On 17th July 2015, the NATO Defense College had the pleasure of welcoming Major General Andrzej Fałkowski, Polish Military Representative to NATO MC and the EUMC.
Upon arrival, MajGen Andrzej Fałkowski was warmly welcomed by NDC Commandant MajGen Janusz Bojarski (POL F), Dean Dr Daria Daniels Skodnik (SVN C), and by Col Andrzej Ostrowski (POL A), Faculty Adviser and Senior National Representative of Poland at NDC.
MajGen Fałkowski then received an update on College activities during his office call with the Commandant, before moving to the Main Auditorium to hear the presentation of a study project from members of Senior Course 126.
Later, MajGen Fałkowski delivered a Lecture of Opportunity to SC 126 on the challenges posed by NATO’s consensus-based decision-making process. This thought provoking lecture was followed by a lively Q&A session.
The visit afforded an excellent opportunity for a member of the NATO and EU Military Committees to get a better insight into NDC activities.
