US European Command and NATO's Strategic Concept: Post-Afghanistan and Beyond
Harlan Ullmann, Atlantic Council | June 2011
Atlantic Council Strategic Advisors Group member Harlan Ullman argues that after the NATO drawdown from Afghanistan, EUCOM will become even more important as a means of sustaining and building NATO's capabilities and capacities in an era of limited defense resources. This Program on International Security issue brief is part of a series of five issue briefs to assess the future roles, missions and tasks of the United States European Command in the aftermath of the approval of the new NATO Strategic Concept and the initiatives launched at the November 2010 NATO summit in Lisbon. These publications are the product of a collaborative effort between the Atlantic Council's Strategic Advisors Group and the Institute for National Security Studies at the National Defense University.
This study brought together top minds from the United States and Europe for three workshop discussions in Washington, with the goal of producing of a series of issue papers offering recommendations for EUCOM.
