At the invitation of French Minister of Defense Michèle Alliot-Marie, the 22nd International Workshop on Global Security was presented at La Chapelle-en-Serval and the Chateau de Chantilly on 10-12 June 2005 in order to address the theme of “Global Security: A Security Strategy for the Coming Decade.”  Responding to the “continental drift” that has threatened to further separate the two shores of the Atlantic, Minister Alliot-Marie has said that she would be the Minister of “defense diplomacy” (diplomatie de defense): For the first time in two decades, she invited the NATO Defense Ministers to an informal ministerial meeting that was held in Nice earlier this year. And we hope that our 22nd International Workshop further contributes to her vision of strengthened U.S.-European relations.

Patronage of Minister Michèle Alliot-Marie. We appreciate Minister Alliot-Marie's warm invitation to hold this year's Workshop in France, her many contributions as Workshop Patron, and the remarkable help of an organizing committee that her Ministry established in Paris nearly one year in advance of the Workshop. This committee comprised well-chosen representatives of French government and industry: Ambassador Marc Perrin de Brichambaut, then Director for Strategic Affairs in the Defense Ministry and now OSCE Secretary General; Mr. Jean-Louis Gergorin, Executive Vice President at EADS-France; Ingénieur Général de l’Armement Robert Ranquet, Deputy Director of Strategic Affairs in the Ministry; and Admiral Jean Betermier (Ret.), Special Advisor to the Chairman of EADS.  

Workshop Advisory Board. Members of the Workshop Advisory Board were also invaluable in planning for this year's Workshop, and we have tried to recognize them and some of their contributions below. On this committee, General George Joulwan was especially helpful. Ever since he succeeded General John Shalikasvili as Supreme Allied Commander, Europe and Honorary General Chairman of the Workshop, General George Joulwan has played an important leadership role. During this year's Workshop discussions, he has expressed grave concern for casualties in Iraq and called for a major program to deal with the improvised explosive devices that are the major cause. 

Addresses by Defense Ministers. In her role as Workshop Patron, Minister Alliot-Marie presented the Workshop's opening keynote address on 10 June and presided a panel of distinguished political leaders: British Defence Secretary Dr. John Reid, Canadian Defense Minister Bill Graham, Bulgarian Defense Minister Nikolay Svinarov, Slovakian Defense Minister Juraj Liška, and Slovenian Defense Minister Karl Erjavec. 

General Harald Kujat's valedictory address. Later that evening, General Harald Kujat gave his final address as Chairman of NATO's Military Committee and NATO's most senior military official. General Kujat has supported and participated in the Workshop as Director of Germany's Planning Staff, as Chief of Defense of Germany, and as Chairman of the NATO Military Committee. He has contributed much to the Workshop and his leadership will be missed. We were glad that General Raymond Henault, his successor, was able to participate in the Workshop as well. 

NATO's operational role. On 11 June, opening speakers were General George Joulwan, former Supreme Allied Commander, Europe; Mr. John Koenig, Acting U.S. Permanent Representative on the North Atlantic Council; General Rainer Schuwirth, Chief of Staff of Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe (SHAPE); and General Gerhard W. Back, Commander of Allied Joint Force Command, Brunssum (whose responsibilities include NATO's mission in Afghanistan). 

Iran and the Middle East. Dr. Werner Fasslabend, Member of the Austrian Parliament and former Minister of Defense of Austria, gave a luncheon address on “Iran's Security Implications in the Middle East” which was followed by discussions led by Ambassador Benoît d’Aboville, France's Permanent Representative on the North Atlantic Council. His Canadian counterpart, Ambassador Jean-Pierre Juneau, presided over a special session in which Ambassador Thomas Pickering, former United States Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs and a Boeing Senior Vice President, also addressed Iran and the Middle East. 

The EU and NATO. Ambassador Marc Perrin de Brichambaut chaired a major panel on “The Way Ahead for the EU and NATO” with presentations by Admiral Giampaolo Di Paola, Italy's Chief of Defense Staff; General Klaus Naumann, former Chief of Defense of Germany and Former Chairman of the NATO Military Committee; and Lieutenant General Jean-Paul Perruche, Director General of the European Union Military Staff. 

Investing in capabilities. Speaking on “Global Security: Investing in Capabilities” were Dale Klein, U.S. Assistant to the Secretary of Defense for Nuclear, Chemical and Biological Defense Programs; Mr. Jean-Louis Gergorin; Rt Hon Bruce George, Chair of the Select Committee on Defense of the U.K. House of Commons; and Mr. Denis Ranque, Chairman and CEO of Thales. 

Ukraine's Orange Revolution. At the Chateau de Chantilly, the historic residence of the Princes de Condé, Mr. Jean-Louis Gergorin welcomed participants on behalf of the French government and industry. Ukraine's Foreign Minister Borys Tarasyuk described Ukraine's experience since the Orange Revolution six months earlier. 

Providing the capabilities. On 12 June, addressing the theme of “International Cooperation: Providing the Capabilities,” Mr. Patrick Auroy, Director for Force Systems and Industrial, Technological and Cooperation Strategies, Délégation Générale pour l’Armement at the French Ministry of Defense, led a large and distinguished panel of acquisition and industry leaders with Mr. Jan-Olof Lind, Swedish National Armaments Director; Dr. Hans-Heinrich Weise, Ministerialdirektor, Director of the Armaments Division at the German Defense Ministry; Mr. Alfred Volkman, Director for International Cooperation in the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense (Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics); Admiral Sir Mark Stanhope, Deputy Supreme Allied Commander Transformation; Mr. François Courtot, Senior Vice President for International Development at SAFRAN; Mr. Giovanni Bertolone, Chief Executive Officer of Alenia Aeronautica S.p.A.; and Dr. Scott Harris, President for Continental Europe of Lockheed Martin Global. 

Network-centric operations. Dr. Linton Wells II, U.S. Assistant Secretary of Defense for Networks and Information Integration (acting), chaired a series of major presentations on network-centric technologies and information technologies which were presented by Mr. Kent Schneider, President of Defense Enterprise Solutions at Northrop Grumman Information Technology and Mr. Thomas Vice, Vice President–Business Development at Northrop Grumman Integrated Systems. 

Workshop wrap-up. Ambassador Jaromir Novotný, Czech Ambassador to India, chaired a final “Overview” panel with Latvian State Secretary Edgars Rinkevics, Romanian State Secretary Ion Mircea Plangu,  and Vice-Admiral Tarmo Kõuts, Commander of the Estonian Defense Forces.

Acknowledgements: Château de Chantilly, Château Hotel Mont Royal, and the Workshop International Staff

Château de Chantilly. At the Château de Chantilly, the “Trompes de Chasse” (ensemble of traditional hunting horns) of the Garde Républicaine of the French Ministry of Defense welcomed the Workshop participants. We are grateful to Minister Alliot-Marie, the Garde Républicaine, and especially Ingenieur Général Robert Ranquet for making this performance possible. 

Surrounded by gardens and canals designed by Le Nôtre and set in the midst of one of the largest forests north of Paris, the Château de Chantilly was built over a period spanning the 14th to the 19th centuries. Its Condé Museum hosts the largest collection of paintings in France after the Louvre, with paintings by Fra Angelico, Raphael, Van Dyke, and a library of rare books including the famous Book of Hours, the Très Riches Heures du Duc de Berry. It has been the residence of great figures in French history, from the Princes de Condé to the Duc d’Aumale, son of King Louis-Philippe. We are grateful for the tremendous support of Château Director Mr. Frédéric Nancel, and its many outstanding staff members including Mr. Alexis de Kermel. 

Château Hotel Mont Royal. Its beautiful and efficient facilities on a hill-top in the Chantilly forest near the Château de Chantilly were ideal; The château hotel's Director, Mrs. Valérie Claude, and her well-trained staff gave us truly outstanding support. 

Workshop international staff. Dr. Lin-Hua Wu (J.D., Stanford) returned to the Workshop staff for the eighth year. Caroline Baylon, a graduate of Stanford, coordinated a very effective international workshop staff including Britta Schultheis, manager of the all-important Workshop database, Dr. Eugene Whitlock (J.D., University of Michigan), who helped coordinate the Workshop logistics, and Jean Lee, director of the Workshop's graphics and photography. Jean made life easier for us this year by shifting to digital photography. Other staff members were Jonathan Durand, Jens Domberg, Dr. Frances Hsieh (J.D., Stanford), and Julien Sauné. 

Workshop publications. As CSDR Deputy Director, Anne D. Baylon played a key role in every aspect of the Workshop's development as well as the editing of this volume, for which she was responsible. She acknowledges the contributions of her editorial team, including Carol Whiteley, and the valued assistance of Kevin Cotter with layouts and printing. We appreciate the tireless efforts and years of experience of everyone on this outstanding staff.
