About the Atlantic Community Initiative

The Atlantic Community Initiative was established as a non-partisan, non-profit, educational organization in the spring of 2001 with the goal of promoting awareness and dialogue on Euro-Atlantic issues and strengthening the sense of community among the democratic nations in the Euro-Atlantic area.

The Initiative maintains that the United States, Canada and the democratic nations of Europe, even in the absence of a Soviet-style military threat, still share a wide area of shared values and common interests.

Maintaining the sense and reality of "Community" among these nations is essential to protect their individual and collective interests as well as to facilitate their effective contributions to international peace, stability and well-being more generally.

However, it is clear that the Atlantic Community must be nurtured and strengthened in order best to serve the interests of the members.

A strong Atlantic Community requires a commitment by the members to sharing burdens, responsibilities and benefits on an equitable and sustainable basis.

Toward this end, the Initiative actively supports steps to promote and strengthen the community of values and interests among all democratic states in the Euro-Atlantic area and particularly among members of and candidates for membership in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and the European Union.
