About Atlantic Council

Working Together to Shape the Future. Renewing the Atlantic Community for Global Challenges

Driven by our mission of "working together to secure the future," 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 in order to adapt, revitalize, and defend the international rules-based order. 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.

Our focus on results attracts an extended network of global citizens who join our community of influence. For heads of state and government, the Council is a powerful platform for connecting with a uniquely relevant audience. Businesses find a place for understanding our rapidly evolving world, its impacts on markets, and means to contribute to the public interest. For global strategists, we are a vehicle to navigate the trends shaping the future. 

The Council's fourteen programs and centers work together in a way that mirrors how real policy is created: not in a vacuum, but in a collaborative effort that draws from a range of expertise to address multiple issues and steered by an over-arching strategy and worldview.

The Atlantic Council community believes that by working together, we can and should secure a better global future. Succeeding in our mission requires the hard work of building consensus, including rather than excluding partners, while also broadening awareness of our mission's importance among the public and preparing a new generation of leaders to take up the mantle of fostering a better global future.
