The event, which was attended by over 300 people, was moderated by VCDNP Executive Director Elena Sokova. The welcome remarks were offered by Ettore Greco, Executive Vice President of IAI.

The panellists discussed the role of Europe and in particular the European Union in the field of non-proliferation, arms control and disarmament. Focusing on the EU's role in the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action negotiations, multilateral fora and the work of the EU Non-Proliferation and Disarmament Consortium and Network, panellists offered insights based on their respective experiences. Panellists also discussed changes in the field over the years and offered thoughts on how to engage more women and young people in this work. A more detailed report of the event can be found below.
