NATO and the North Atlantic: Revitalizing Collective Defense

March 9, 2017 • 2:30 – 4:00 pm EST
As the strategic link between Europe and North America, the North Atlantic has always held great geostrategic importance to NATO. NATO members have only recently begun to recognize the urgent need for a renewed and credible deterrence posture in the North Atlantic to ensure freedom of navigation, trade and transport, and force reinforcement to Europe, as well as to counter new emerging challenges such as undersea hybrid warfare. A refocused NATO must develop a 21st century security approach for the North Atlantic, which includes enhanced air and maritime capabilities and reinvigorated regional command and control. Please join us on March 9 to celebrate the launch of a new book, NATO and the North Atlantic: Revitalizing Collective Defense and for an interactive discussion on the strategic importance of this region to NATO and the United States, as well as several new policy recommendations.
