NATO’s operational tempo is higher than ever before, with around 85,000 troops deployed in Afghanistan and 10,000 troops in the Balkans, while the Alliance supports anti-piracy operations in the Gulf of Aden, anti-terrorism missions in the Mediterranean Sea, and training and advice initiatives for Iraq and the African Union. NATO has also responded to humanitarian disasters in Haiti, Pakistan and the United States after Hurricane Katrina.
Are these operations sustainable in the long term? Where will NATO need to go next, and what capabilities will be required? And finally, what is the role NATO wants and can reasonably maintain in a global security environment?
Please join us for a discussion of Alliance operations with the Chairman of NATO’s Military Committee, Admiral Giampaolo Di Paola (ITNA).
