NATO at 60: SACEUR's Perspective

1 April 2009 - 4:00pm to 5:00pm

Chatham House, London


General Craddock, Supreme Allied Commander, Europe, NATO
Chair: Dr Robin Niblett, Director, Chatham House



The Supreme Allied Commander, Europe will reflect on the Alliance's evolution and many accomplishments, discuss its current realities and challenges, and offer his views on future strategic-operational constructs for NATO. He will argue that new threats and new challenges call for new solutions and that NATO, as the linchpin in the European security architecture, must find new approaches to counter emerging threats in our rapidly changing security environment.

General Craddock has been NATO's Supreme Allied Commander Europe (SACEUR) since 2006. Previously he led US forces in Kosovo in 1998, and was chief military assistant to the US Defence Secretary between 2002-2004.

This meeting will be held under the Chatham House Rule.
