This paper benefited from discussions in the Atlantic Council’s
Strategy Consortium, a forum that brings together strategists
from diverse sectors—think tanks, academia, government, and the
private sector—to discuss the key security issues facing the United
States and its allies. The primary purpose of the Strategy Consortium is to create an ecosystem of strategists from diverse sectors who, by working together over time, can build a body of strategy work and promote strategy development and strategic thinking more generally.
