Watch Jens Stoltenberg on the NATO Summit

The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), together with the German Council on Foreign Relations (DGAP) and The Brookings Institution, have the pleasure to invite you to a special virtual conversation.

As allied leaders prepare for the NATO Summit in Brussels on June 14, 2021, the transatlantic alliance faces a host of challenges that include Russia’s aggressive actions, the threat of terrorism and cyberattacks, disruptive technologies, the security impact of climate change, and the rise of China. At the same time, the Biden administration offers the opportunity for Europe and North America to work more closely together than they have for many years. The Secretary General will outline his vision in a keynote address followed by a discussion of the NATO 2030 agenda.

Welcoming Remarks:

John R. Allen, President, The Brookings Institution

Cathryn Clüver Ashbrook, Designated Director and CEO, German Council on Foreign Relations (DGAP)


Constanze Stelzenmüller, Fritz Stern Chair, Center on the United States and Europe, The Brookings Institution
