    Bogdan Aurescu, Secretary of State for Strategic Affairs, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Romania, will deliver a lecture at the United Nations University Headquarters on the topic of Romania’s contribution to the newly established NATO missile defence system.

    In November 2010 in Lisbon, NATO’s leaders decided to develop a ballistic missile defence capability to pursue the core task of collective defence. Following the Lisbon decision, the alliance began developing a command and control system that will be able to connect missile defence assets provided by individual NATO members into a coherent defence. NATO’s long-term goal is to provide full coverage and protection for its European members’ population, territory and forces against the increasing threats posed by the proliferation of ballistic missiles.

    After the lecture, Mr. Aurescu will be available at the UNU Press bookstore to discuss his lecture and his contribution to the recent edited volume Blood and Borders: The Responsibility to Protect and the Problem of Kin-State published by UNU Press.
