Statesmen's Forum: Jens Stoltenberg, NATO Secretary General

May 27, 2015 • 11:00 am – 12:00 pm EDT

Adapting to a Changed Security Environment

Please join us for a Statesmen’s Forum featuring NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg as he considers the challenges facing the Transatlantic Alliance and the ways in which NATO must adapt. What are the challenges posed by a more assertive Russia? Are its aggressive actions in Ukraine part of a larger pattern? With state and non-state actors employing hybrid and asymmetrical warfare tactics on multiple fronts, how is NATO adapting its strategy and posture in order to effectively combat these often unclear and ambiguous threats? As the Alliance seeks to deliver on its mandate of preserving the freedom and security of all its members, Secretary General Stoltenberg will consider these questions and offer his insights on the future of NATO in this changing security environment.
