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 work in order to understand and shape the Cooperative Multidimensional Security

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 where as developing an insightful security conversation.

Afghanistan and Central Asia: Looming priorities and regional un-balances will take place in #Rome on October 4, 2018.

We present you the second panel of the conference.

Il 30 settembre il popolo macedone si recherà alle urne per un importante referendum. Nel Paese balcanico, finora riconosciuto da alcune nazioni come #Fyrom (acronimo di Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia), si voterà per approvare la nuova definizione di Repubblica della #Macedonia del nord in conformità all’intesa siglata a luglio con la #Grecia, chiudendo una disputa di tre decenni con #Atene.

L'appuntamento, tuttavia, non è solo carico di significati storici ma anche di ripercussioni politiche, perché una vittoria del "sì" aprirebbe la strada all’integrazione di Skopje nella Nato e all’inizio dei negoziati di adesione all’Ue. Fatti e scenari dell'evento analizzati in una conversazione di Formiche con il nostro Direttore Alessandro Politi

With many predicting the end of #US hegemony, #Russia and #China's growing cooperation in a number of key strategic areas looks set to have a major impact on global power dynamics. But what lies behind this Sino-Russian rapprochement? Is it simply the result of deteriorated Russo-US and Sino-US relations or does it date back to a more fundamental alignment of interests after the Cold War?

Alexander Lukin answers these questions, offering a deeply informed and nuanced assessment of Russia and China's ever-closer ties. (Polity)
