COVID-19 will have more than just a major impact on social and economic life. It threatens to reshape the global security environment and the Euro Atlantic world that emerged in 1989. An expert panel will discuss the future of NATO and the critical US/Europe security partnership from which the western alliance draws its strength.

James Everard served as the Deputy Chief of Defence Staff for Military Strategy and Operation (UK), Commander UK Field Army and finally as the Deputy Supreme Allied Commander Europe (NATO).

Nathalie Tocci (@NathalieTocci) is Director of the Istituto Affari Internazionali and is special adviser to the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs Josep Borrell.

Peter Watkins is an Associate Fellow for Chatham House and a Visiting Senior Fellow with LSE IDEAS.

Michael Cox is Director of LSE IDEAS and Emeritus Professor of International Relations at LSE.

This event is part of LSE's public event series - COVID-19: The Policy Response.

COVID-19 represents an enormous challenge for the social sciences to help governments and non-governmental organisations respond to the economic and societal consequences of the pandemic. Part of LSE's response to this challenge is a series of online public events that will take place over the Summer Term.

Why not visit the School of Public Policy COVID-19 Resource Centre.

This event in the series has been organised by LSE IDEAS.

The next event in this series will take place at 4pm on 22 May on Responding to a Pandemic: the view from Latin America.

LSE IDEAS (@lseideas) is LSE's foreign policy think tank. We connect academic knowledge of diplomacy and strategy with the people who use it.
