Security and Defence in Northern Europe (SNE)

Forskningsprogrammet Security and Defence in Northern Europe (SNE) har sikkerhets- og forsvarssamarbeid i Nord-Europa som overordnet tema.

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Den sikkerhetspolitiske situasjonen i Nord-Europa er i endring. En kombinasjon av nye og tradisjonelle trusler, samt økt press på nasjonale forsvarsbudsjetter, resulterer i nye tilnærminger til forsvarssamarbeid i regionen. Samtidig ser vi et Russland som utfordrer den eksisterende sikkerhets- og forsvarspolitiske situasjonen fra nordområdene til Østersjøen og Baltikum.

SNE er et fireårig forskningsprogram (april 2013–april 2017) som utforsker muligheter og utfordringer for sikkerhets- og forsvarspolitisk samarbeid i Nord-Europa. Hvordan preges regionens sikkerhetspolitikk av USAs prioriteringer? Hvilken rolle vil større europeiske land som Tyskland, Storbritannia og Polen spille i Nord-Europa i fremtiden? Og hvordan utvikler det utvidete nordiske forsvarssamarbeidet seg, gitt de nye utfordringene både i nordområdene og i Østersjøen?

Forskningsområder

  • Nordisk og nordisk-baltisk forsvarssamarbeid
  • Natos og EUs roller i Nord-Europa
  • Nordområdene og sikkerhetspolitikk
  • Tysklands og Storbritannias forsvars- og sikkerhetspolitikk
  • USAs engasjement og tilstedeværelse i Nord-Europa
  • Norsk forsvars- og sikkerhetspolitikk

SNE-programmet organiserer seminarer og workshops som inkluderer ekspertmiljø og politikere, og publiserer forskningsbaserte studier, analyser og kommentarer.

RoutledgeAllers, Robin. 2017. "Modern deterrence? NATO’s Enhanced Forward Presence on the eastern flank". In NATO and Collective Defence in the 21st Century, edited by Karsten Friis. Routledge<p>​​​​This book presents a cutting-edge assessment of NATO's collective defence strategies in the immediate aftermath of the July 2016 NATO Warsaw Summit.</p><p>Collective defence and deterrence came back on the agenda at the 2014 Wales Summit following the Russian annexation of Crimea, and was in many respects a game changer for NATO. The Warsaw Summit was a follow-up and operationalization of the Wales Summit, as well as adding further initiatives to the agenda. But is NATO delivering? </p><p>This book provides a thorough assessment of the on-going debates and discussions taking place within and outside of NATO in Europe and North America. In its return to deterrence, NATO is confronted with challenges relating to strategic thinking, capability development, and the role of nuclear weapons. It has also raised questions about the future prospects for NATO membership for countries such as Sweden and Finland, with broader implications for the security situation in the Baltic region. Central to all this is of course NATO's relationship with Russia and questions of a new security dilemma, in turning bringing to the fore the challenge of maintaining an appropriate balance between deterrence and dialogue. </p><p>The chapters in this volume address these questions and provide a much-needed analysis of the results of the NATO Warsaw Summit.</p><p><a href="https://www.routledge.com/NATO-and-Collective-Defence-in-the-21st-Century-An-Assessment-of-the-Warsaw/Friis/p/book/9780415786294" target="_blank">To learn more about the book, go to t​​he Routledge website.</a></p>

Change and Continuity in the German Approach to Crisis Management". German Politics, published online 24 May 2016.<p>​​​​In the two-and-a-half decades since unification Germany has developed a distinctive approach towards international crisis management. This approach accepts the need to engage in the full spectrum of military and civilian operations but maintains a clear preference for the latter. Consequently, the European Union with its profile as a civil–military actor in international security is the preferred framework for German contributions. </p><p>The article analyses the development of the German approach during the governments of Gerhard Schröder and Angela Merkel in the light of three interlinked debates on German foreign policy: continuity and change; multilateralism; and leadership. The announcement of a more active German foreign policy in 2014 has reanimated these debates. </p><p>Concentrating its efforts on networked security and capacity building Germany has become an indispensable player in international crisis management. At the same time Germany's deeply rooted attachment to a culture of military restraint and continued reluctance to lead, limit its ability to work for necessary reforms at the European level.</p><p><a href="http://www.tandfonline.com/eprint/5QuZb2G95ynvYrW2Admu/full">To read the article, go to the Taylor& Francis website​</a>.</p>
