NRAFs support the College through their expertise on areas that are relevant to the NDC and NATO's broader agenda.
Current Non-Resident Associate Fellows are Aniseh Bassiri Tabrizi from the Royal United Services Institute (UK), Thomas G. Mahnken from the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments, Antonio Missiroli, former NATO Assistant Secretary General, Andrew Monaghan from the University of Oxford, and Sten Rynning from the University of Southern Denmark.
