Sign up for "NATO's Progress in meeting the New Russia Challenge"


Russia's use of its rearmed military to challenge the post-Cold War security order in Europe have had a dramatic impact on the strategic environment. 

The military has returned as a cornerstone of Russia's foreign policy, supported by an increasingly diverse and expanding nuclear and conventional capabilities, a large and modern set of delivery systems of long-range precision weapons, and a spectrum of military and non-military asymmetric capabilities, designed to undermine US/NATO information technology-enabled warfare, as well as the stability of Western societies. 

Russia's comprehensive approach to power projection both in peacetime and in conflict poses another challenge for the Alliance by eroding the traditional paradigm peace-crisis-conflict.

The intensifying strategic competition between major powers and contesting of the rule-based order established by the United States and its allies after WWII is one of key characteristics of the major shift in the international system. 

The growing instability has been among central drivers of change in NATO's defence and deterrence posture and a source of a growing concern in Norway, both as Russia's neighbour and as a NATO member. 

How adequate and effective have NATO's strategic choices been? What impact have they had on regional stability? Are there other viable alternatives to improve the strategic environment in Europe in the short and the long term?
