ABOUT US


PRESENTATION (PDF VERSION)


The NATO Defense College Foundation was established in Rome in 2011. It grew out from a common intuition of the President Alessandro Minuto-Rizzo and the NATO Defense College top decision makers who understood the value of a non- profit NGO that could work beyond usual and institutional outreach, training, communication and scientific research activities.

While the tradition of stability and well-being is embodied by the principles of the Washington charter, the triple upheavals of the fall of the Soviet Union, the global economic crisis and the Arab Revolutions required a more focused, agile and innovative approach.

Therefore the NDCF strives at considering relevant issues not just in a descriptive or prescriptive way, but by catching the sense of events and the essential vectors of future developments. In a word: Charting ahead.

The principles stated in the preamble to the Washington Treaty of 1949 are our heritage.

Our mission is to promote the culture of stability and well-being in the North Atlantic area and in NATO partner nations.

Our aim is to meet the highest standards in contributing to public debate and future deliberations on strategic, security and geopolitical issues.

We foster dialogue through education, research and outreach to the challenges that we are confronting.

The Foundation is a unique combination of scientific freedom, private agility and institutional linkage. It builds upon the top level connections and operational experience in Trans-Atlantic outreach towards Middle East, Eastern Europe, Southern Mediterranean and West Asia.

Our scientific research consists of several activities: Strategic Trends, Food for thought, International conference, High-level seminar, advisory panels.

The aim of our activities is to empower for the future and to enable change, not to repeat mantras.

We deal with diversity and complexity in the globalised world. As a result, our work tries to understand and shape the Cooperative Multidimensional Security, as well as developing an insightful security conversation.

As @NATO celebrates 70 years of transatlantic peace & prosperity, we want to highlight some key facts about the Alliance. #NATO continuously adapts to meet a range of threats, including hybrid attacks that put our democratic institutions, our shared values, & economies at risk.

Three years ago, terrorism struck in Brussels. Two years ago, in London. One week ago, in Christchurch. Terrorism comes in many forms & may hide behind religion or ideology. But it always attacks our freedom & our values. Let our answer be to stand up against hate – every time.
