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.

Sikkerhetssituasjonen i Nord-Europa har de siste årene blitt mer krevende og uforutsigbar. Tradisjonelle og ukonvensjonelle trusler i kombinasjon med økt press på nasjonale forsvarsbudsjetter gjør samarbeid med allierte, partnere og naboer stadig viktigere.  

Tettere samarbeid gjennom bilaterale avtaler og i rammen av multilaterale institusjoner og regionale grupperinger bidrar til å styrke nasjonal og kollektiv forsvarsevne. Flernasjonalt samarbeid byr samtidig på utfordringer fra det praktiske til det politiske plan, og reiser dilemmaer med hensyn til nasjonal handlefrihet og alliert samhold.

SNE er et flerårig forskningsprogram (april 2013–desember 2018) som utforsker drivkrefter, muligheter og utfordringer for sikkerhets- og forsvarssamarbeid i Nord-Europa. Gjennom forskningsprosjekter ved IFS, samarbeid med internasjonale partnere og seminarer i inn- og utland er formålet å skape større innsikt i den dynamiske utviklingen i det sikkerhetspolitiske bildet og samarbeidsmønstre i regionen.  

I perioden 2017–18 gjennomføres programmet i samarbeid med 

  • Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), 
  • Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) og 
  • German Council on Foreign Relations (DGAP). 

Pågående tematiske fokus: 

  1. Sikkerhets- og forsvarssamarbeid om havområdene på NATOs nordlige flanke.
  2. Utformingen av avskrekking og kollektivt forsvar i en endret sikkerhetssituasjon.

SNE-programmet organiserer seminarer, konferanser og workshops med ekspertmiljøer og beslutningstakere, og publiserer forskningsbaserte studier, analyser og kommentarer.

Major, Claudia & Alicia von Voss. 2017. «European Defence in View of Brexit». SWP Comments, April Major, Claudia & Alicia von Voss. 2017. «European Defence in View of Brexit». SWP Comments, April <p><span style="color:#000000;font-family:arial, sans-serif;font-size:12.0132px;background-color:#ffffff;">​The United Kingdom (UK) Prime Minister Theresa May’s official request, on March 29th, to leave the European Union (EU) will change the way European countries organise their defence policies. Europeans have always managed their defence via various channels: nationally, in the EU, through NATO and in smaller formats. Brexit will change the way these formats function and how they interact. The effect on the EU’s Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP) will be limited. NATO might benefit from a greater UK commitment, as can smaller formats. The result will be greater fragmentation in European defence, which risks weakening the Europeans’ political and military capacity to act.</span></p><a href="https://www.swp-berlin.org/en/publication/european-defence-in-view-of-brexit/"><p>Download the report from the SWP website</p></a>
Saxi, Håkon L.. 2017. «British and German initiatives for defence cooperation: the Joint Expeditionary Force and the Framework Nations Concept». Defence Studies, 5 AprilSaxi, Håkon L.. 2017. «British and German initiatives for defence cooperation: the Joint Expeditionary Force and the Framework Nations Concept». Defence Studies, 5 April<p>​​At NATO's 2014 Wales Summit, the UK and Germany unveiled two new initiatives for European defence cooperation, known, respectively, as the Joint Expeditionary Force (JEF) and the Framework Nations Concept (FNC). Both were the result of economic pressures and the need to exercise intra-alliance leadership, but they represented very different approaches to cooperation. </p><p>The JEF was to be a UK-led contingency force for short-notice operations, selectively incorporating forces from allies and partners. </p><p>The FNC sought to coordinate capability development between groups of allies, centred on larger framework nations, to develop coherent capability-clusters available to meet NATO's force requirements. </p><p>The common denominator and novelty of the initiatives was the building of forces and capabilities multinationally by having major states act as framework nations for groups of smaller allies. The UK and Germany have ownership and continue to provide leadership to these initiatives. This is one key reason why they continue to evolve to accommodate changing circumstances and are likely to endure.</p><p></p><p><span style="font-size:10pt;font-family:arial, sans-serif;color:#333333;background:white;"><a href="http://www.tandfonline.com/eprint/dsKpmmer7mCrcHQSGP7C/full" target="_blank">Download the article from ​Taylor & Frances website</a></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10pt;font-family:arial, sans-serif;color:#333333;background:white;">Hvis du mangler tilgang: kontakt Forsvarets høgskolens bibliotek:<span class="apple-converted-space"> </span></span><span style="font-size:11pt;font-family:calibri, sans-serif;color:#333333;background:white;"><a href="mailto:bibl@fhs.mil.no"><span style="font-size:10pt;color:#877040;">bibl@fhs.mil.no</span></a></span><span style="font-size:11pt;font-family:arial, sans-serif;color:#333333;background:white;">​</span>​<br></p>

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>
