The Streit Council works toward better-organized cooperation between the U.S. and Europe, along with liberal democracies in the wider world. Weaving academic research with policy work, it provides expert analysis and perspectives on the historical and contemporary dimensions of the transatlantic relationship, its prospects, and its potential in a rapidly changing global context. It builds on transatlantic and other inter-democracy institutions, supporting their treaty commitments to grow wider and deeper. They foster education, research, and policy initiatives on Euro-Atlantic integration, with particular emphasis on NATO and the European Union. They sponsor conferences, workshops, research projects, policy-networks, and reports to explore: Widening and deepening the EU, NATO, G-7/8, IEA, and OECD; Efficient decision-making and voting processes in inter-democracy institutions; Ways for the core democracies to foster broader democratization and integration; Role of transatlantic institutions as an open nucleus of world order, built initially around long-standing democracies and gradually expanding to newer democracies.
