Clough Colloquium


unnamed (1)

Anders Fogh Rasmussen has been at the center of European and global politics for three decades as Secretary General of NATO, Prime Minister of Denmark, Danish Minister of Economic Affairs, and a leading Danish parliamentarian.

Rasmussen has advocated for stronger ties between the world’s democracies, including a truly “Integrated Transatlantic Community,” a Transatlantic Free Trade Agreement between the EU and North America, and a global community of democracies.

He is the founder of Rasmussen Global which advises clients on a wide range of issues such as international security, transatlantic relations, the European Union, and emerging markets. In his latest book, The Will To Lead: America’s Indispensable Role in the Global Fight for Freedom (September, 2016), Rasmussen argues that western democracies with the steadfast leadership of the United States must stand up to authoritarianism around the world.
