Atlantic Council of the United States
The Atlantic Council promotes constructive leadership and engagement in international affairs based on the Atlantic Community's central role in meeting global challenges. The Council provides an essential forum for navigating the dramatic economic and political changes defining the twenty-first century by informing and galvanizing its uniquely influential network of global leaders. Through the papers we write, the ideas we generate, and the communities we build, the Council shapes policy choices and strategies to create a more secure and prosperous world.
Since its founding in 1961, the Atlantic Council’s mission has been included in a fundamental sense: helping Americans understand that they are part of a broader international community.
The Atlantic Council has distinguished itself as an institution where Americans work collaboratively with their counterparts in allied and partner countries to develop ideas, propose solutions, and build a better world.
Then, as now, the organization was animated by diverse views and perspectives. Diversity has always been and will always be a competitive advantage. It’s their engine for exponential growth and exceptional performance.
Today, the Atlantic Council cherishes its status as a diverse international organization, where
those who speak different languages, have different political points of view and come from
different national, religious, and ethnic backgrounds draw on their varied experiences to enrich their work.
