Strategic Concept

Photo credit: NATO

NATO's "Strategic Concept" is its core mission statement, and the current 1999 version predates the 9/11 attacks on the United States and the sending of NATO forces to Afghanistan. The 60th Anniversary NATO Summit held in Strasbourg/Kehl in April 2009 launched the process that will lead to a new NATO Strategic Concept in late 2010 or early 2011. This is a summary list of all the content in the site categorised within the Strategic Concept policy area. Also see and comment on NATO Watch’s Citizens Declaration of Alliance Security.
