MAIN THEME

The main theme of the opening international conference Future Forces 2022 is NATO-EU Cooperation Towards Military Capability Development.

EVENT FORMAT

PREAMBLE

The year 2022 could be called The Year of Changes in the Security Policy not only of the Czech Republic for several reasons.

Domestically, it is primarily a change in the position of the Minister of Defence and the Chief of the General Staff. Within the Alliance, the main expected event in security policy was the expected approval of the NATO Strategic Concept at the June Summit. Another factor, no less important for the Czech Republic, is the European Union's efforts to strengthen its role in the area of security policy as defined by the EU Strategic Compass. The Czech Presidency of the Council of the EU in the second half of 2022 will certainly play a role.

However, the invasion of Ukraine by Russian Armed Forces is an event that has undoubtedly transformed the security paradigm of our time. NATO and the EU face a clear security threat at a time when states are recovering from the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Czech Republic has newly committed to increase defence spending to 2% of GDP in a much shorter timeframe than the previous government had planned. Even though this move has the support of society in the current situation, spending (especially investment) will be closely monitored by both the professional and lay public. The effectiveness of spending, maximizing the use of domestic defence industry and effective international cooperation within NATO and the EU will be key criteria for evaluation.
