A sample of our past work with the media:
The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) is set to finalize the Alliance’s new Strategic Concept this week at the LisbonSummit (19-20 November). The current Strategic Concept was fashioned in April 1999, heavily influenced by the Alliance’s interventions in former Yugoslavia. Since then, NATO troops have helped keep the peace in the region, Western Balkan countries have contributed hundreds of troops to the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) in Afghanistan and the promise of NATO membership has spurred the countries of the region to adopt security and political reforms that will hopefully consolidate their nascent democracies.
