Almost 20 years after the accession of the Czech Republic into NATO, the Atlantic Alliance remains the cornerstone of Czech and Central European Security. These 20 years present a great opportunity to take stock of the relationship between the United States and the Czech Republic on key security issues and to understand today where this relationship stands, and how to envision its future. Jim Townsend and key Czech security experts will discuss this timely issues just a couple months before the next NATO Summit.
