New Challenges Need A New NATO Strategy
Facing new threats and dangers, NATO must have the right tools ready at its disposal. On the road to the 2016 NATO Summit in Warsaw, this year’s CEPA Forum will discuss NATO’s evolving toolbox, among other pressing issues in transatlantic security.
The Forum will be held in Washington, on October 1, 2015, in partnership with the Czech Presidency of the Visegrád Group. Featuring a premiere lineup of global leaders and prominent thinkers in U.S.-CEE relations, the Forum will provoke debate and provide answers to the strategic problem sets facing the United States and its frontline allies.
Forum speakers include the Commander of the U.S. Army in Europe, Lieutenant General Ben Hodges, who will tackle how countries and their leaders can properly prepare for the Warsaw NATO Summit.
As NATO commented: “This summit comes at a crucial time for the alliance, as the tectonic plates of Euro-Atlantic security have shifted both in the East and the South.” By considering the strategic dimensions of this change, the Forum will provide unique insights into allied preparations for Warsaw.
The CEPA Forum is the leading annual transatlantic security conference in Washington. The Forum highlights the transformative economic, strategic and political potential of the countries between the Baltic and Black Seas and their importance to the United States.
