D-10 Strategy Forum is a unique series of meetings organized by the Atlantic Council and the Centre for International Governance Innovation that aims to bolster unity and coordination among leading democracies in addressing global challenges.

The Forum brings together top policy planning officials and strategy experts from ten leading democracies at the forefront of building and maintaining the rules-based democratic order.  Participants in this “Democracies 10” — Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, South Korea, the United Kingdom, and the United States, plus the European Union — have demonstrated a commitment to shared values and interests, and possess the requisite diplomatic, economic, and military resources to act on a global scale.
