- The NATO Heads of State and Government took the decision to initiate a reflection process at the London Summit of 3-4 December 2019. In line with this decision NATO Secretary General designated a Group of Experts to carry forward the process on 31 March 2020.
- This Group is expected to submit the outcome to Secretary General to consult on the set of recommendations for a new Strategic Concept to be adopted by NATO most probably in 2021.
- The purpose of this study herebelow is to contribute to the reflection process already launched within NATO by offering a blueprint in a synoptic form of a new strategic concept for the Alliance. It should be seen as a food for thought for the process and, therefore, does not deserve any further attribute.
