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.

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.
