WIIS Brussels, WIIS-DC, WIIS France, and WIIS UK invite members of all WIIS chapters to submit an application to attend programming along the sidelines of the December 2019 NATO Leaders meeting in London! Applicants chosen by the selection committee will participate in events on December 3rd and 4th, sponsored by the NATO Engages Consortium, and meetings on December 5th, organized by WIIS. The primary topic of discussion will be “What Role for NATO in the Digital Age?” Following the event, selected applicants will be required to co-author an article and record a podcast with one of the other participants. The article will address a topic of the pairing’s choosing that relates to discussions from the Summit’s programming. WIIS will publish the articles with a London-based think tank and provide equipment for participants to record the podcast. To apply, please submit a one-page resume and short statement of interest (500 words maximum) to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Completed Application for London Leaders Summit.” The statement of interest should outline your professional background and motivation for participating in the programming.
