ON THE SUMMITS: PERSPECTIVES FROM GLOBAL LEADERS
NATO AFTER AFGHANISTAN – A VIEW FROM EUROPE
Over the last two decades, NATO has attempted to redefine itself to become a more flexible and dynamic military alliance. Since joining in 1999, Poland has played a critical role in NATO with regard to enlargement, missile defense, and global operations, including maintaining a current deployment of approximately 2,500 troops in Afghanistan. The conflict in Afghanistan, meanwhile, has proven to be an important milestone in the organization’s evolution. With NATO transitioning its Afghanistan operations and the United States pivoting its strategic focus from the European continent to Asia, what is next for the NATO alliance? Please join The Chicago Council on Global Affairs with His Excellency Radosław Sikorski for a discussion on NATO after Afghanistan.
