The next NATO Summit in Warsaw, planned for July 2016, will take place at a critical point for the Euroatlantic partners. With threats emanating from both Europe’s East and South, NATO is confronted by a wide-array of conventional and unconventional challenges. With this in mind, the Alliance must work to reinforce its collective defense and adapt to a new and increasingly unpredictable security environment. The Summit must also seek to strengthen partner nations and foster ever-greater resiliency within the Alliance.
Fitting its objective to strengthen transatlantic relations, GMF is conducting a comprehensive programming initiative in the months leading up to the Summit. Through convening and policy analysis on the critical topics of the day, GMF is informing the discussion around key issues for the next Summit. Specifically, GMF will accomplish this by producing research and analysis, and convening key experts and policy makers in DC and across its European offices in Berlin, Brussels, Paris, and Warsaw.
