The New Battle of the Atlantic and Security in Northern Europe

Facing Russia’s military build-up, Northern European nations must show unity of effort. 22 October 2018, IFS invited Vice Admiral Clive Johnstone and other leading experts to discuss ambitions and obstacles.

How can Northern European nations find ways to make regional defence cooperation strategic rather than ad hoc? To answer this question, the seminar offered introductions from different perspectives by authors from a new RUSI Whitehall Paper, Security in Northern Europe, which focuses on 'hard' security in the Wider North.

The second part of the seminar consisted of a keynote address by Vice Admiral Clive CC Johnstone, Commander of NATO's Allied Maritime Command (MARCOM) in Northwood, UK. The Admiral talked about his new responsibilities and current challenges in the North Atlantic, followed by a Q&A session.

The seminar was organised by the research programme Security and Defence in Northern Europe, Norwegian Defence University College/Norwegian Institute for Defence Studies (IFS), and took place in Oslo Military Society.
