“NATO Strategic Concept: Response to Our Concerns?”

29.01.2010

Event Summary

On January 12, 2010, the Prague Security Studies Institute opened the season with an international conference on the future NATO Strategic Concept. The event, co-hosted by the Czech Ministry of Foreign Affairs and supported by NATO Public Diplomacy Division , welcomed over a hundred of policy practitioners, officials from NATO countries, think tanks, and NGO community, journalists and experts. Present were several members of the Group of Experts on the Strategic Concept  appointed by the Secretary General, led by the former U.S. Secretary of State Dr. Madeleine Albright.   
    Discussions focused on the views of Allied states, particularly from Central and Eastern Europe, regarding NATO's future role in Europe and beyond. A number of speakers addressed the issue of finding the right balance between territorial defence and out of area missions as well as between NATO’s commitment to Article 5 and new security challenges. Other topics included NATO’s crisis management capabilities and the relations between the Alliance and the EU.
    In her intervention, Secretary Albright emphasized the importance of security reassurance to member states as well as the need to work on better relations with the Russian Federation. “There is no question that an important concept is reassurance, that Article 5 is central to the NATO Alliance, and at the same time it is very important to also reset our relations with Russia,” Albright said.

Detailed summary highlighting the opinions voiced during the conference can be viewed in the publication section.
