Climate change and degradation of natural resources. Implications for the military

In this article, Maartje van Reedt Dortland, Dominique Noome, Fred Kruidbos, and Sander Agterhuis (reserve officers at the Netherlands Ministry of Defence) highlight various examples of ways in which climate change and natural resources are related to security. This is followed by a brief overview of measures to address climate change undertaken or planned by ministries of defence from various countries.

 

Future multilateral cooperation. Leveraging the NATO enhanced Forward Presence two years on

Christian Leuprecht (Royal Military College) et al argue that the eFP deployments must avoid hub-and-spoke approaches and try to undertake a more inclusive and multilateral approach. The Canadian-led eFP deployment in Latvia provides the best opportunity for such thinking to be put in practice.

 

De liberale internationale orde: feit of fictie?

Is het einde van de liberale internationale orde aanstaande? Om die vraag te beantwoorden is een eerste vraag over wat die orde inhield en of zij daadwerkelijk heeft bestaan geen overbodige luxe. Jan Rood (Instituut Clingendael) geeft een uitgebreide beschouwing op dit onderwerp.

 

Making deterrence great again!

The US-Poland joint declaration signed in June brings about a milestone change with regard both to quantity and to quality of the US military presence on Polish soil. Due to that, it must be seen as a strategic development that can be dubbed: “making deterrence great again”. Marcin Czepelak and Marcin Kawalowski (Ambassador and Counsellor, respectively, at the Polish Embassy in the Netherlands) argue this case.

 

The next generation of telecommunication. How will the EU anticipate on Chinese 5G infrastructures?

Should the EU see the rise of China and increased assertiveness on the world stage as a threat, or should it embrace the opportunities it brings? Lucas Mendes de Leon (Vrije Universiteit) examines China’s involvement in telecommunications, specifically focusing on the EU’s perception vis-à-vis Chinese 5G infrastructures.
