Meeting: Security in Northern Europe

 

On Thursday March 28th the Royal Netherlands Society for Military Art and Science (KVBK) and the Netherlands Atlantic Association organized a program themed:

 

Security in Northern Europe

 

With NATO returning its focus to its core mission of deterrence and collective defence, certain regions have regained strategic prominence. One of the most important is Northern Europe, here defined as the twelve countries that constitute ‘The Northern Group’.

In this program various national concerns and challenges were examined, and possible actions to ensure that the region remains prosperous and safe were discussed. The program offered a geostrategic insight into the differing security priorities of the key actors in Northern Europe, both the ‘Baltic Sea oriented’ ones and those more interested in the North Atlantic region. Svein Efjestad (Norwegian Ministry of Defense) shared the Nordic perspective on the matter, Jamie Shea (NATO) the view of NATO and the general trans-Atlantic perspective, and LtG Martin Wijnen the Dutch perspective. The program is summarized in this report.
