The Atlantic Council announces a new partnership, adding the NATOSource blog to the Council’s internet platform.

NATOSource is a central source where just one click provides you with all the key NATO news of each day. NATOSource is a perfect combination with our established analytical blog, the New Atlanticist, bringing together coverage of breaking security news with insightful analysis of key trans-Atlantic issues. NATOSource is also located below the New Atlanticist section of the Atlantic Council homepage.  You can also subscribe to both blogs and other Council products at /atlantic-council-feeds.

"This is a welcome partnership for the Atlantic Council," said Frederick Kempe, President and CEO of the Atlantic Council. "The Council is about reenergizing the trans-Atlantic relationship and one of the ways we are carrying this out is by building an online home for the trans-Atlantic community."

NATOSource is a unique data management service. Readers finally have a destination website for the news and developments driving the discussions and debates within the alliance. NATOSource is already consulted by governments across the world, as well as international organizations, media services, and leading universities.

The Atlantic Council is also pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Jorge Benitez as a Nonresident Senior Fellow in the International Security Program. He manages NATOSource and is a former Assistant for Alliance Issues in the Office of the Secretary of Defense. Dr. Benitez previously served as a specialist in international security for the Department of State and the Institute for Foreign Policy Analysis. He received his B.A. from the University of Florida, his M.P.P. from the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University, and his Ph.D. from the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University.

The Atlantic Council seeks to renew the Atlantic community for global challenges through constructive U.S.-European leadership and engagement in world affairs. Led by Senator Chuck Hagel, chairman, and Frederick Kempe, president and CEO, the Council embodies a network of policy, academic and business leaders who foster transatlantic ties through non-partisan and cross-national discussions and studies.
