Description : The book addresses security threats and challenges to the European Union emanating from its eastern neighbourhood. The volume includes the expertise of policy and scholarly contributors coming from North America, Russia and Central Asia, and from across the EU. Themes and issues include the EU’s capacities and actorness, support from the United States, challenges from Russia, and a range of case studies including Ukraine, other post-Soviet conflicts, the Kurdish question, Central Asia, and terrorism and counter-terrorism. Authors identify current threats and place these challenges into necessary historical context. They offer long-term recommendations for actionable goals to achieve greater stability in this complex and volatile region. This work is explanatory and long-lasting, and will engage readers in the limits and possibilities of the EU in a challenging era and in its most vital and demanding geographic arena.

Description : A ‘Black Swan’ event is defined as an event with an exceptional or extraordinary character representing a surprise for the observer; one which has a wide impact and highlights something that has been neglected by observers in understanding what was critical in their system, procedure or unit. This book presents material from the NATO Advanced Research Workshop Black Swans on the Eastern Flank, held in Bucharest, Romania, on 18 and 19 April 2018. The workshop was designed as a response to the need to develop agile situational awareness and analysis capabilities and skills, correlated with horizon-scanning and strategic anticipation initiatives, and was conducted with particular reference to the Balkan and Black Sea regions and in the context of the broader destabilization and destructuring trends of the international security order, the challenges posed by increasing terrorism, the escalating dynamic of cyber-attack and information manipulation, and so called hybrid tactics, together with the broader impact of new technologies on security. Two situations were presented by each participating country to generate an analysis framework for the unexpected and challenging events for each state in the region; the situations likely to become their ‘Black Swans’ between 2018-2020. The discussions during this Advanced Research Workshop highlighted the nature of the scenarios, their probability, impact and the means to tackle each situation, and the book aims to provide an instrument to better prepare the systemic prevention and response, and will be essential reading for anyone interested in potential future crises in this vulnerable part of Europe.

Description : This book presents a cutting-edge assessment of NATO's collective defence strategies in the immediate aftermath of the July 2016 NATO Warsaw Summit. Collective defence and deterrence came back on the agenda at the 2014 Wales Summit following the Russian annexation of Crimea, and was in many respects a game changer for NATO. The Warsaw Summit was a follow-up and operationalization of the Wales Summit, as well as adding further initiatives to the agenda. But is NATO delivering? This book provides a thorough assessment of the on-going debates and discussions taking place within and outside of NATO in Europe and North America. In its return to deterrence, NATO is confronted with challenges relating to strategic thinking, capability development, and the role of nuclear weapons. It has also raised questions about the future prospects for NATO membership for countries such as Sweden and Finland, with broader implications for the security situation in the Baltic region. Central to all this is of course NATO’s relationship with Russia and questions of a new security dilemma, in turning bringing to the fore the challenge of maintaining an appropriate balance between deterrence and dialogue. The chapters in this volume address these questions and provide a much-needed analysis of the results of the NATO Warsaw Summit. This book will be of interest to policymakers and students of NATO, international security, European Politics, security studies and IR in general.

Description : Over the years, the European Union has developed relationships with other international institutions, mainly as a result of its increasingly active role as a global actor and the transfer of competences from the Member States to the EU. This book presents a comprehensive and critical assessment of the EU’s engagement with other international institutions, examining both the EU’s representation and cooperation as well as the influence of these bodies on the development of EU law and policy.

Description : In ten to fifteen years, the European Union could include as many as 25 to 30 member states. In view of such an enlarged Union, a definition of the essential interests regarding foreign and security policy is required, as well as a reform of the Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP). Otherwise, the European Union will be unable to effectively tackle the increasing regional and global problems, and as a result of the Union's irresolution, the security of its member states may be impaired. Taking into account the enlargement of the EU with the inclusion of Finland, Austria, and Sweden, the contributors to this book examine the changes taking place in central and eastern Europe, the increasing importance of a broader definition of security, as well as various scenarios for the structure of Europe's security and defense policies. Proposals for future reform of the CFSP are also developed.

Description : This volume draws together and analyzes the changing conditions in Europe since the momentous events of 1989 and 1990. The dissolution of the Warsaw Pact, the attempted coup d'etat against Gorbachev, and violence in Yugoslavia are only a few of the events that have shaken the foundations of European and international affairs. The studies included provide insight into the most important aspects of European security, including military, economic, and political issues and also assess both North American and European perspectives about contemporary events and future scenarios.

Description : Lancée en 1950, l'idée de créer une Communauté Européenne de Défense (CED) est contemporaine de celle de fonder une Communauté Européenne du Charbon et de l'Acier (CECA). Mais le projet est une gageure. Il heurte les cultures nationales en matière de défense, suscite de violentes réactions dues à la perspective de voir se côtoyer des ennemis d'hier au sein des mêmes unités, déclenche l'opposition à la standardisation du matériel, hérisse les adversaires d'une liaison entre la CED et la construction d'une Europe politique. Devant une telle variété de facteurs visant à expliquer la mort du projet, le 30 août 1954, certains ont parlé d'un «meurtre collectif». Page d'histoire, le projet de CED et son échec n'en constituent pas moins, aujourd'hui, une référence qui donne matière à réflexion sur cette question que l'on se plaît à considérer comme vitale pour l'avenir de l'Europe: la sécurité commune. In 1950, in parallel with the plans for the foundation of the European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC), there first grew the idea for creating a European Defence Community (EDC). But the project was not a success. It conflicted with the various national defence cultures, sparked off violent reactions against the alignment of former enemies within a single unit, unleashed opposition to the standardisation of equipment, and raised the hackles of those opposed to a bond between the EDC and the construction of a political Europe. In the face of so many different factors contributing to the project's death on 30 August 1954, there was even talk in certain quarters of a «collective murder». As an important event in history, the EDC project and its failure still have echoes today, causing us all to ponder a question which is universally considered as crucial to the future of Europe: a common security policy.
