Thank you for the opportunity to provide a view on NATO’s possible contributions to conflict management and conflict prevention or, to put it another way, to address the framework and capabilities for crisis response operations within the Alliance. "Give us the tools, and we will finish the job". Winston Churchill's famous words may have been spoken in completely different circumstances over 60 years ago, during the early days of the Second World War, but they aptly describe both the new situation which the Alliance finds itself in and the reasoning behind the new Strategic Concept, which was endorsed at the Washington Summit in April this year.
