Summer Academy in Ukraine
The first ever NATO Summer Academy “The NATO Istanbul Summit: understanding international security and Euro-Atlantic integration in Ukraine” took place in Simferopol on 30 June - 3 July, 2004.
Over 60 young political party advisors and students from across Ukraine gathered in the city of Simferopol, the capital of Crimea. The event provided the participants with first hand information on security issues and the results of the Istanbul Summit.
With the participation of Marek Ziolkowski, Ambassador of Poland, NATO Contact Point Embassy in Ukraine and the Rector of the Taurida National University (TNU), Dr. Mykola Bahrov, the event was organised by TNU with the support of the NATO Information and Documentation Centre in Kiev.
In an effort to increase NIDC’s outreach activities in the Crimea, a region of Ukraine where misconceptions about the Alliance have been particularly noted, Simferopol was specifically selected as the venue for holding the Academy.
