Central European Defense

Engaging the strategic dimensions of U.S.-European security cooperation.

The Central European Defense program at CEPA aims to foster greater security among NATO’s easternmost Allies by strengthening the strategic anchors of Euro-Atlantic defense.
Combining innovative analysis, policy research and structured dialogue with leaders in government and industry, the program examines the leading trend lines and topics that are shaping the future of Euro-Atlantic security. What opportunities exist for mooring U.S.-European defense interests in the 21st Century? How can NATO members grow as contributors to regional and global stability? What avenues exist for deepening and sustaining America's bilateral linkages with European Allies?
By addressing these questions today, the Central European Defense program assists decision makers on both sides of the Atlantic in forming an advanced understanding of tomorrow's security environment and Alliance capabilities.
