In May, the twenty-eight leaders of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) will come to Chicago to explore the best ways to enhance NATO’s ability to defend its members and to ensure the success of future operations. In this time of economic crisis and shrinking budgets, how will NATO maintain its cohesion and its edge? How will it manage the transition in Afghanistan and prepare for new challenges ahead? What will the NATO force look like in 2020? How can the Allies and their partners work together to address new global threats? Join The Chicago Council for a conversation with Ambassador Ivo Daalder on the American perspective on NATO and the agenda of the NATO Summit in Chicago.
