I’m in Brussels with eight other security bloggers for two days of briefings at NATO Headquarters followed by defense ministers meeting on February 2 and 3.
During my time at NATO, I’ll attend briefings on Libya, Afghanistan, missile defense and a host of other topics. In some of these, I’ll be able to ask questions of senior NATO officials. Not every briefing will be on the record, but I’ll post summaries of the main points made by the speakers and my fellow bloggers and try to get a few on-record interviews for Dispatch readers.
Over the course of the next few days, I will be asking questions about protection of civilians in conflict zones, the legacy of NATO’s involvement in Libya, the preparedness of the Afghan security forces to take over from international troops in 2014, the alliance’s relationship with Pakistan, and its commitment to UN Security Council Resolution 1325 on including meaningful representation by women in conflict and post-conflict resolution.
Do you have a question you’d like me to raise at NATO this week? Post it in the comments below or tweet it to me @UnainKabul. I’ll include as many reader questions as possible and credit readers who suggest questions in my forthcoming blog posts.
