Martin Bútora, a member of the International Board of the Slovak Atlantic Commission and the Strategy Council and Honorary President of the Institute for Public Affairs, has become a member of the group of policy experts appointed by NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen that will prepare proposals to reaffirm and strengthen the Trans-Atlantic Bond.
