On the 11th and 12th of July the Summit of NATO Heads of State and Government will be held in Brussels. These types of gatherings are aimed at evaluating and providing strategic direction to the activities of the Alliance and enhancing partnerships. The meeting is generally followed by the publication of an official communiqué that states the main decisions taken and, hence, NATO’s strategy for the coming years. The previous Summit took place in Warsaw in 2016 and saw the introduction of new policies and major initiatives. Among the most remarkable outcomes is the launch of the concept of projecting stability beyond NATO’s borders and the embracing of a 360° approach which looks at all fronts and all sources of instability.
