Shaping the global future together
Driven by our mission of “shaping the global future together,” the Atlantic Council is a nonpartisan organization that galvanizes US leadership and engagement in the world, in partnership with allies and partners, to shape solutions to global challenges. Find out more about us below.
The Atlantic Council promotes constructive leadership and engagement in international affairs based on the Atlantic Community’s central role in meeting global challenges. The Council provides an essential forum for navigating the dramatic economic and political changes defining the twenty-first century by informing and galvanizing its uniquely influential network of global leaders. The Atlantic Council—through the papers it publishes, the ideas it generates, the future leaders it develops, and the communities it builds—shapes policy choices and strategies to create a more free, secure, and prosperous world.
As the Atlantic Council negotiates the historic disruptions of 2020, our Annual Report for 2019 shows how our past year’s performance was preceded by a dozen years of growth and innovation.
ANNUAL REPORT BY THE ATLANTIC COUNCIL
The Atlantic Council’s Board of Directors is a distinguished group of policy influencers and business leaders who are committed to aiding the Council in its mission of working alongside global allies and partners to shape the future in face of growing global challenges.
Founded by the late General Brent Scowcroft and chaired by David McCormick, the Atlantic Council’s International Advisory Board includes the chief executives of several globally significant companies, and former prime ministers and presidents from Australia, Croatia, Denmark, Pakistan, Poland, Spain, and Sweden. Together, they form one of the most influential and lasting groups that support constructive US leadership in the world alongside our friends and allies—the Atlantic Council’s founding purpose.

Atlantic Council policies
The Atlantic Council and its staff, fellows, and directors generate their own ideas and programing, consistent with the Council’s mission, their related body of work, and the independent records of the participating team members. The Council as an organization does not adopt or advocate positions on particular matters. The Council’s publications always represent the views of the author(s) rather than those of the institution.
The Atlantic Council enjoys a diversified donor base helping to ensure our credibility and integrity. As we grow, we increasingly are engaging governments which are interested in supporting programming at the Council. To protect our independence and reputation, we have established a process to obtain authorization to negotiate financing with a government or state-controlled entity.
The Atlantic Council accepts funds from a broad range of sources provided they are for purposes that are in keeping with its mission. These contributions may be payable on an annual basis or over a period of time, or be given as in-kind goods or services. The Atlantic Council is grateful for the contributions it receives, which provides critical support that makes the Council’s work possible.
