The North Atlantic Treaty Organization is one of the most important and visible pillars of the transatlantic partnership. Atlantic-community.org's web module "NATO's Agenda" is designed to connect Atlantic Community members to NATO decision makers and encourage constructive debate on the issues facing the Alliance.
"NATO's Agenda" features articles, speeches, and videos spotlighting the activities of the Alliance, including content from NATO sources and analyses from Atlantic Community members. It is also the hub for atlantic-community.org's Question and Answer sessions with senior NATO officials. Our most recent Q&As were with:
- NATO Spokesperson Oana Lungescu about NATO-EU cooperation
- General Jean-Paul Paloméros about NATO's military transformation
- Mari Skaare, the NATO Secretary General's Special Representative for Women, Peace and Security.
You can contribute to the debate by submitting your own op-eds and commenting on other articles. The best ideas and debates are condensed into Atlantic Memos and sent to policymakers in Europe and North America.
