Professor Matthew Kroenig Joins the Atlantic Council’s Scowcroft Center as Deputy Director for Strategy
Dr. Kroenig is also a tenured associate professor of government and foreign service at Georgetown University. He previously served in several positions in the US government, including in the Strategy Office in the Office of the Secretary of Defense and the Strategic Assessments Group at the Central Intelligence Agency. He regularly consults with a range of US government entities. He is the author or editor of six books, including The Logic of American Nuclear Strategy (Oxford University Press, 2018), and his articles and opinion pieces have appeared in Foreign Affairs, Foreign Policy, Politico, the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, and many other outlets.
Dr. Kroenig was a nonresident senior fellow with the Atlantic Council since 2013. In his new role, Dr. Kroenig will oversee the Scowcroft Center’s strategy work and focus on great power competition with China and Russia, emerging technology, and strategic deterrence and weapons nonproliferation.
“We are delighted to welcome Dr. Kroenig, one of the most well-known and well-respected thought leaders on nuclear weapons and strategy, to the Atlantic Council,” said Fred Kempe, CEO of the Atlantic Council. “He brings a wealth of knowledge and keen strategic insight and we look forward to engaging him to expand our strategy work.”
“I am honored to deepen my relationship with the Atlantic Council and to work more closely with one of the fastest-growing and most impactful nonpartisan think tanks in Washington DC,” Kroenig said. “The Atlantic Council has established itself as a leader in national security strategy and America’s relations with its allies and partners. I look forward to expanding the innovative and relevant work of the Council on today’s most pressing global challenges.”
