Euro-Atlantic Security

This programme looks at the security environment in the Euro-Atlantic area, especially at the challenges connected with the deterioration of the relationship between Russia and the West. It analyses the consequences of the crisis for the EU, NATO and the OSCE and offers recommendations on future policy.

The Euro-Atlantic Security programme takes a wide angle view of security issues, considering, among others, nuclear and conventional arms control, transparency and confidence-building measures, terrorism and other hybrid challenges, economy and sanctions, or cyber-space.
