Please plan to join the Atlantic Council’s Brent Scowcroft Center on International Security and the Norwegian Institute for Defence Studies (IFS) for a conference on NATO's Deterrence and Collective Defense.

This event is part of the Atlantic Council and IFS project on NATO in an Era of Global Competition. This eighteen-month project examines new ways of thinking strategically about NATO’s future role in the context of emerging security challenges, global power shifts, and disruptive technologies. The first conference in this series, NATO in a New Security Landscape, which took place in June, covered emerging trends in the global security environment and identified key challenges that NATO must confront to maintain strategic relevance in the future.

The upcoming conference will gather key US and European leaders to discuss new tools of deterrence including cyber and economic deterrence, the future of nuclear burden sharing, missile defense in Europe, and restructuring NATO’s deterrence capabilities to fulfill its likely future mandates.

This event is open for press coverage. Please contact press@acus.org with inquiries or to reserve your spot. 


When you arrive, please use the West Tower elevators.

If you have any questions regarding the conference, please contact  us.
