The Way Forward for NATO

8 December 2009 - 1:30pm to 2:30pm

Chatham House, London


Dr Liam Fox MP, Shadow Secretary of State for Defence
Dr Robin Niblett, Director, Chatham House



The speaker will argue that the NATO alliance must come to terms with the trials it faces and the resources it has available. He will suggest that in a globalized and interdependent world NATO must be prepared for a full spectrum of challenges. NATO members need to understand that membership brings implicit and explicit responsibilities to ensure that their armed forces have the capability to fight and win on the modern-day battlefield. He believes that, with the current struggle in Afghanistan, the threat of global terrorism, problems with energy security, and a resurgent Russia, the stakes for NATO are high, and therefore establishing a purpose and an agenda for the twenty-first century is the way forward for the organization.
