The world has fundamentally changed in the past decade so the time has come to update the Strategic Concept, which is second only to the Alliance’s founding treaty as a source of guidance for NATO’s strategy and initiatives.

[T]he Secretary General is consulting with Allies, partners and other stakeholders, including academics and the private sector….

Over many decades, NATO has built up a large network of valuable partnerships with non-member countries from the Euro-Atlantic area, the Middle East and North Africa, the Mediterranean and across the globe. These partners have contributed significantly to NATO’s operations, exercises, training, capability development processes, and research and experimentation in new areas. Allies are committed to maintaining active dialogue with partners.
