GMF convenes ambassadors to the United States from NATO member countries once a year, with appropriate representation from the U.S. government. This unique platform provides an ideal opportunity for discussing current and future policies, identifying potential divides among member states that could lead to suboptimal policies, and working towards common policies.
Such a group also fills a clear void in Washington. EU Ambassadors meet on a regular basis, but there is no similar meeting that reflects the relevance of NATO in today’s world and works to build a deeper understanding of the debates and discussions that exist among Europeans and across the Atlantic, which is central to, among other things, continued U.S. engagement in European security policy. Ambassadors from European members and Canada also reports the relevant insights from these engagements back to their respective capitals to inform the policy debate at home.
This is an invitation-only event.
