Podcast: The Defence Café

The Defence Café is the security and defence podcast of the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom in Brussels (FNF Europe).

As European states are confronted with a host of security challenges, they are prompted more than ever to cooperate. This, however, requires trust and compassion, because the world looks different from Estonia than it looks from Spain. For deeper cooperation to occur, deeper communication is needed first. And for deeper communication to be successful, a good cup of coffee is required.

In the Defence Café, your hosts Teresa Reiter and Jeroen Dobber will travel across Europe and meet one inspiring individual per episode. Guests in the Defence Café will talk about their ideas on European defence – but also about their countries’ curiosities. Because Europe is united in military diversity.

Follow and listen to the Podcast now also on Buzzsprout, Spotify and Apple Podcast.
