Corporate Conference Call: Post-NATO Summit Analysis

Speakers: Ivo H. Daalder, U.S. Permanent Representative to NATO
Rachel Bronson, Vice President, Studies, The Chicago Council on Global Affairs
Presider: Gideon Rose, Editor, Foreign Affairs
May 22, 2012

On Tuesday, May 22, Ivo Daalder, the U.S. Permanent Representative to NATO, will offer his take on the Chicago summit. The immediate question is whether the alliance can withdraw its forces from Afghanistan while leaving behind a stable country that can stave off the Taliban. The long-term question surrounds the future of NATO as a guarantor of international peace and security.

Daalder, in the March/April issue of Foreign Affairs, writes that the organization's successful mission to help liberate Libya proves that the alliance can still be an essential source of stability, but adds "to preserve that role, NATO must solidify the political cohesion and shared capabilities that made the operation in Libya possible."
