The International Herald Tribune has today published an article by Des Browne, Wolfgang Ischinger, Igor Ivanov and Sam Nunn in which they argue that Cold War-era strategies and tactics are ill-suited to the real and current threats we face. The authors describe working this past year with over 30 senior political, military and security experts from across the Euro-Atlantic area to develop a new approach for building mutual security in the region. This approach is set out as recommendations for key policy changes for presidents, prime ministers, parliamentarians and publics.
