NATO-Russia roundtable on recruitment

Under the auspices of the NATO-Russia Council, the Ad-Hoc Working Group on Defence Reform held a working-level roundtable on professional forces at NATO Headquarters on 28 April.

The purpose of the roundtable was to allow national experts engaged in the recruitment and manning of their nations' forces to exchange ideas, lessons learned and perspectives, particularly on recruiting professional military personnel.

Participants were able to benefit from the experiences of nations on the challenges of recruiting and retaining military personnel. Diverse ideas and solutions to problems were presented and discussed. This was the first such roundtable to be held in the context of force planning.
