Start of the new IISS Europe Office
The International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) opened its new Europe Office on September 7, 2021, under the leadership of Dr. Ben Schreer. At the reception with more than 140 invited guests from politics, administration and the press at the AXICA, IISS Director-General and Chief Executive Dr. John Chipman welcomed, among others, Minister of Defense Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer and Members of the Bundestag Alexander Graf Lambsdorff, Omid Nouripour and Dr. Nils Schmid.
With its new Europe Office in Berlin, the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) is expanding its global activities. The office will be the central hub for helping to shape the German and European debate on security and defense policy.
For the AXICA team around project manager Eléonore Bodart, this reception was a good opportunity to put the focus back on personal encounters and to shine with a professional interplay of hospitality, security and hygiene.
