About the Organizers:


THO is a young, independent, nonpartisan, Washington, D.C.-based think tank that promotes discussion and dialogue surrounding a number of themes including, the NATO Alliance, U.S.-Turkey bilateral relationship, geopolitics in the Middle East and more. Through dynamic programming, publications, fellowships and more, THO seeks to drive analysis and conversation surrounding geopolitics in the region and the Alliance.


The NATO Defense College Foundation is the only existing think-tank bearing the name of the Alliance. It was established in Rome in 2011 and it grew out of a common intuition of the President Alessandro Minuto-Rizzo and the NATO Defense College top decision makers who understood the value of a non-profit NGO that could work beyond usual and institutional outreach, training, communication and scientific research activities. Our mission is to promote the culture of stability and well-being in the North Atlantic area and in NATO partner nations.
