Inside NATO: Ambassadors Ivo Daalder, Stefano Stefanini, Per Poulsen-Hansen
In conversation with Commonwealth Club President and CEO Dr. Gloria Duffy
Now including 28 countries of Western, Eastern and Southern Europe – as well as the United States – NATO has evolved to include roles as varied as fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan, airlifting aid to Haiti after the recent earthquake, and ensuring collaboration among its members in combating terrorism. What else does NATO do today? How strong is this alliance? How is it measuring up to the new challenges of security we and our European allies face, from terrorism and cyberterrorism, climate change, the global economic rollercoaster, pandemics, natural disasters, and nuclear proliferation? What should an alliance of economically developed democracies be doing in the world today? Join us for an informal, open-mike discussion with the current U.S. Ambassador to NATO, Ivo Daalder, the current Italian ambassador to NATO, Stefano Stefanini, and the current Danish Ambassador To NATO, Per Poulsen-Hansen.
