Atlantic Council President and CEO Frederick Kempe and Brent Scowcroft, interim chairman at the Council, talk about the importance of the Atlantic Council.
About the event:
The Atlantic Council on May 1 presented its top global leadership awards to former US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen, Chevron Chairman and CEO John S. Watson, legendary performer and humanitarian Tony Bennett, and musician and social activist Juanes.
The 2014 NATO Summit is critical for the alliance as it grapples with crises in Ukraine, Afghanistan, the MENA region - and the organization's own trajectory.
The Atlantic Council's Future Leaders Summit was the only event inside the official NATO Summit venue where over fifty heads of state and government convened. The summit is a flagship Atlantic Council event and the premier global security gathering for future leaders.
