NATO, arguably the most successful political-military alliance in history, continues to work to provide security against current and emerging threats. The speaker will discuss a range of concerns at the top of NATO's agenda including the ongoing mission in Afghanistan, the importance of ensuring a cooperative and frank relationship with Russia, and the need for a new Strategic Concept. Under President Clinton the speaker was Director for European Affairs on the National Security Council staff responsible for coordinating US policy towards Bosnia.
