Our Intent

Provide NATO and NSHQ Allies and Partners with expert SOF advice, information, training, education, networking and operational support.  Be prepared to be part of a SOF Command and Control (C2) Core, deployable.  Engage routinely with SHAPE, other NATO entities, and our Nations.  Enable national and combined NATO SOF capabilities, which are increasingly relevant in today’s uncertain and dynamic world.  Act with unity of purpose on behalf of NSHQ.

Our Mission

NSHQ is the primary point of development, coordination and direction for all NATO Special Operations-related activities, in order to optimise employment of Special Operations Forces.   Provide an operational command capability when directed by SACEUR.
