On December 7, the Atlantic Council, in partnership with the Alliance of Democracies Foundation, released a report, An Alliance of Democracies: From Concept to Reality in an Era of Strategic Competition, by Ash Jain, Matthew Kroenig, and Jonas Parello-Plesner. The discussion featured questions such as if it is time for a new Alliance of Democracies, what the purpose and mission of such an alliance would be, which nations should be included, and if the Summit can feasibly contribute to this initiative.
