The three-day convening Château Béla 2016 Central European Strategic Forum gathered around forty high-profile politicians and experts to generate new ideas on current issues in a calm setting of the historical Château Béla. The Forum did not lack emotions when the participants were discussing the most burning issues ranging from the age of disinformation, through new security challenges for NATO, reforming European intelligence to prevent terrorism, to the “Save Plan” for Europe and expectations from the new US administration. The output with all the lessons learned is available here.
