As threats emerge from Russia, China, and other authoritarian actors, are Western democracies prepared to rise to the challenge? With NATO set to update its framework for defining security challenges facing the Alliance and the political and military tasks which must be undertaken to address these challenges, this question is both timely and critical.

MLI Senior Fellows Balkan Devlen and Alexander Moens (who also serves as the Chair of the Political Science Department at Simon Fraser University) discuss NATO’s new strategic concept, the history of that policy document, why it matters, what we can expect to see in further updates to NATO’s strategic concept, and whether Canada should play a more active role in shaping that framework.

MLI would not exist without the support of its donors. Please consider making a small contribution today.
