Baltics Left of Bang Table Top Exercise at the Military Academy of the German Armed Forces
The NDC Research Division is supporting an ongoing working study project titled, “The Baltics Left of Bang”, organized by the National Defense University (NDU) and co-sponsored by the Swedish Defence University and the Finnish National Defence University.
On May 27-28, the Military Academy of the German Armed Forces (Führungsakademie der Bundeswehr) hosted the most recent round of tabletop exercises which are the foundation of this study. This is the third of a four-part series of workshops aimed at understanding the drivers of geopolitics in the Baltic Region through various scenarios.
Dr Ozawa represented NDC and the Research Division and participated in this tabletop exercise along with the previous exercise installment at the Baltic Defence College in Tartu, Estonia. NDU will publish the final report with chapter contributions from NDC on energy security and NATO and EU perspectives on the Baltic Region. The final workshop of this series will take place at NDC in December 2019.
