The inaugural Atlantic Council Strategy Paper, entitled "Dynamic Stability: US Strategy for a World in Transition," explores the key global trends shaping the new "Westphalian-Plus world" and outlines a strategy for the United States to pursue to most effectively navigate this new landscape. It suggests that, in addition to continuing to pursue stability as a core foreign and national security policy goal, the United States should seek to harness the dynamic trends now unfolding to better protect and advance U.S. national interests.
The Atlantic Council Strategy Papers series is designed to enrich the public debate and build consensus on the great strategic challenges of our time, as well as to help shape strategic thinking in US and allied governments, the private and nonprofit sectors, and the global media.
We hope you will be able to join us for what is sure to be an informative and lively discussion!
