Atlantic Council

About Atlantic Council

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. Through the papers we write, the ideas we generate, the communities we build, the Council shapes policy choices and strategies to create a more secure and prosperous world.

The Council’s mission has three components: fostering US-European cooperation, tackling global challenges together, and building communities of influence. At the same time, the Council has placed the concept of relevance at the heart of its programming and research. The Council’s model is to recruit intellectual entrepreneurs to lead our work, execute programs aimed at shaping policy, build communities of influence around ideas, aggregate best knowledge, and serve as a home base in Washington for Europeans and global partners.

“Very good opportunity to learn about different issues, contribute your own ideas, and gain new skills. ”

“Lots of smart people in the organization, people work hard but there's also great respect for work-life balance. Bosses were always respectful of my time and would not make me work past 6pm. Also getting to attend many events where high profile speakers were invited (e.g. BP Chief Economist, Marco Rubio was there at some point, many ambassadors stop by).”
