Please join the Scowcroft Center for Strategy and Security’s Forward Defense program for a private workshop on Expanding NATO’s Competitive Mindset: Rethinking Fire and Maneuver across Domains. This discussion will be held on Wednesday, October 4 from 12:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. ET at the Atlantic Council headquarters (1030 15 St NW, 12th Floor, Washington, DC 20005). It will be held under Chatham House Rule, and participants will receive lunch.

This workshop will examine NATO’s approach to multi-domain operations (MDO), particularly as it relates to activities across physical and non-physical domains. Participants will identify challenges and opportunities to operationalize MDO across the Alliance, taking lessons from the US Joint Force. The workshop will be divided into three sessions:

  1. Targeting & Effects-Generation across Physical & Virtual Domains
  2. Harnessing Data, Tools, & Authorities across the Competition Continuum
  3. Maneuver along a Global Contact Layer

This workshop, held in partnership with NATO Allied Command Transformation, will result in an Atlantic Council Strategic Insights Memo on these topics and inform a NATO report for the Supreme Allied Commander Transformation.

**Please note that read-ahead documents will be sent to registered participants and posted on this page approximately one week before the workshop.**

Forward Defense, housed within the Scowcroft Center for Strategy and Security, generates ideas and connects stakeholders in the defense ecosystem to promote an enduring military advantage for the United States, its allies, and partners. Our work identifies the defense strategies, capabilities, and resources the United States needs to deter and, if necessary, prevail in future conflict.
