New NDC Publication: Vox Collegii Magazine Volume XXII
Vox Collegii Magazine Volume XXII; the Voice of the College Past and Present.
Happy anniversary! As mentioned in the last edition of the magazine, the NATO Defense College turns 70 this year. Celebrations for this incredible milestone are underway.
We are honoured to be part of this institution, which is constantly growing and improving to enable senior-ranking NATO individuals to develop strategic thinking and understanding of the complex factors that influence transatlantic security, defence and force posture. The College has undergone significant changes since its foundation in 1951. Seventy years on, we can proudly say that its original raison d’être has been preserved and is reflected in the NDC Commandant’s Vision, as you will read in his interview.
In the following pages, you will see that life at the College continues to flourish, and our Alumni and Anciens’ network keeps expanding. The NATO Defense College has been and will continue to be NATO’s strategic-level educational institution, as confirmed by Senior Course 137, which you will also read about in this magazine. The most outstanding paper of the course, winner of the Eisenhower Prize and included in the new “College Series” also deserves a thorough read. You will also be able to see how much activity has taken place to bolster our educational pillar with an improvement to online tools and search engines at the library. All of this truly makes the College the first choice for nations when offering educational development to their senior officers and officials.
For what it has been and what is to come, happy 70th Anniversary!
