The Younger Generation Leaders Network on Euro-Atlantic Security held its fifth meeting in Helsinki, Finland on September 4-7, 2016. Discussions focused on cyber security, the 2016 NATO Warsaw Summit, security in the Baltic region, police reform and the problem of corruption in Ukraine, the rise of radical populism and illiberalism in the Euro-Atlantic region, the backlash against globalization, and the future of economic cooperation in the Euro-Atlantic region. The round table discussions included YGLN members, prominent Finnish experts, and government and private-sector officials.
The YGLN will hold its sixth meeting in Warsaw, Poland in spring 2017.
NTI and the YGLN are extremely grateful to the U.S.-Russia Foundation for its substantial grant to support YGLN's operations for one year.
