NATO Secretary General – Position Paper


American National Security

Laura Herrera

Spring 2020

Primary Role: As NATO Security General, it is my objective and my duty to guarantee the freedom and security of NATO’s members through political and military means.

  1. NATO promotes democratic values and enables members to consult and cooperate on defense and security-related issues to solve problems, build trust and, in the long run, prevent conflict.
  2. NATO is also committed to the peaceful resolution of disputes. If diplomatic efforts fail, it has the military power to undertake crisis-management operations. These are carried out under the collective defense clause of NATO’s founding treaty – Article 5 of the Washington Treaty or under a United Nations mandate, alone or in cooperation with other countries and international organizations.
