Non-Resident Associate Fellows

The NDC created in 2019 a new category of researchers affiliated to the NDC Research Division: the Non-Resident Associate Fellows (NRAFs).
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 Dr Thomas G. Mahnken from the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments, Dr Andrew Monaghan from the University of Oxford, Professor Sten Rynning from the University of Southern Denmark, and Dr Aniseh Bassiri Tabrizi from the Royal United Services Institute, UK.
