Edited by Andrew Cottey. Palgrave<h2 class="forsvaretElement-H2">About the book<br></h2><p class="forsvaretElement-p">This book provides the first detailed comparative analysis of the unusual partnership between the main European neutral states and NATO. Neutrality and alliance membership are fundamentally incompatible, but through the vehicle of NATO’s post-Cold War partnerships the European neutral states and NATO have found a way to bridge this gap and cooperate with one another. </p><p class="forsvaretElement-p">Based on case studies of Austria, Finland, Ireland, Sweden and Switzerland written by leading experts, this book explores the detail of each country’s relationship with NATO, the factors shaping those relationships and whether any of these states are likely to abandon neutrality and join NATO. </p><p class="forsvaretElement-p">The book also contributes to broader work on foreign policy by exploring different explanations of the European neutral states’ foreign and security policy choices.<br><br></p><p class="forsvaretElement-p">This book will be of interest to scholars of the European neutral states, NATO and European security, as well as to those interested in understanding the dynamics behind states foreign policy choices.<br></p><p><a href="https://www.palgrave.com/gp/book/9781137595232"><strong>Go to Palgrave's website to learn more about the book</strong></a><br></p>
Petersson, Magnus. 2017. "NATO's Territorial Defense: The Global Approach and the Regional Approach." In NATO'S RETURN TO EUROPE Engaging Ukraine, Russia, and Beyond, edited by Rebecca R. Moore and Damon Coletta. Georgetown University PressPetersson, Magnus. 2017. "NATO's Territorial Defense: The Global Approach and the Regional Approach." In NATO'S RETURN TO EUROPE Engaging Ukraine, Russia, and Beyond, edited by Rebecca R. Moore and Damon Coletta. Georgetown University Press<p class="forsvaretElement-p">NATO's 2010 Strategic Concept officially broadened the alliance's mission beyond collective defense, reflecting a peaceful Europe and changes in alliance activities. NATO had become an international security facilitator, a crisis-manager even outside Europe, and a liberal democratic club as much as a mutual-defense organization. However, Russia's re-entry into great power politics has changed NATO's strategic calculus.<br></p><p class="forsvaretElement-p">Russia's aggressive annexation of Crimea in 2014 and its ongoing military support for Ukrainian separatists dramatically altered the strategic environment and called into question the liberal European security order. States bordering Russia, many of which are now NATO members, are worried, and the alliance is divided over assessments of Russia's behavior.  <br></p><p class="forsvaretElement-p">Against the backdrop of Russia's new assertiveness, an international group of scholars examines a broad range of issues in the interest of not only explaining recent alliance developments but also making recommendations about critical choices confronting the NATO allies. While a renewed emphasis on collective defense is clearly a priority, this volume's contributors caution against an overcorrection, which would leave the alliance too inwardly focused, play into Russia's hand, and exacerbate regional fault lines always just below the surface at NATO. <br></p><div><p class="forsvaretElement-p">This volume places rapid-fire events in theoretical perspective and will be useful to foreign policy students, scholars, and practitioners alike.<br></p><br></div><p><a href="http://press.georgetown.edu/book/georgetown/natos-return-europe">Read more about the book on the publisher's website.</a></p>

"Sannhetens modifikasjoner – Donald Trump og løgnaktighetens kunst." Nytt Norsk Tidsskrift, nr. 3<p>​<span style="color:#919191;font-family:"open sans";font-size:18px;background-color:#fafafa;">Donald Trumps lemfeldige omgang med fakta og sannhet har utfordret etablerte normer for saklig diskusjon. Skal man forstå Trump, må man imidlertid forstå hans utspill som symptomer på en tendens i USAs offentlighet hvor effektiv presentasjon av et hovedbudskap er viktigere enn sannferdighet. I denne artikkelen ser jeg nærmere på hvorfor sannheten har tapt terreng i det offentlige ordskiftet i USA, og på hvilke former for løgnaktighet som står til disposisjon for den som ønsker å drive igjennom et politisk budskap.</span><br></p><p><span style="color:#919191;font-family:"open sans";font-size:18px;background-color:#fafafa;">Les hele artikkelen på Idunn.no (begrenset): <a href="https://www.idunn.no/nnt/2017/03/sannhetens_modifikasjoner">https://www.idunn.no/nnt/2017/03/sannhetens_modifikasjoner</a> </span></p>

Online 25 June<p>​<span style="color:#333333;font-family:"open sans", sans-serif;font-size:17.6px;">Transatlantic burden-sharing debates often centre on defence expenditures and participation in missions out-of-area. An analysis of US strategy for cooperation with Nordic and Baltic countries during the Clinton, Bush, and Obama presidencies reveals how the United States has worked to promote security export much more broadly. It pursued contributions through in-area military installations, military partnership and missions, and political/economic cooperation promoting security and stability in Northern Europe, the Euro-Atlantic area, and far away. Global strategies and specific thinking regarding contributions from this region formed US policies. Developments were not linear; the United States took on commitments, even as it promoted increased burden-sharing.</span><br></p><p><span style="color:#333333;font-family:"open sans", sans-serif;font-size:17.6px;"><a href="http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/14794012.2017.1337684">Les artikkelen på nettsidene til Journal of Transatlantic Studies.</a></span></p><p><span style="color:#333333;font-family:"open sans", sans-serif;font-size:17.6px;">Ikke tilgang?

Lundestad, Ingrid. 2015. "Turning Foe to Friend? US Objectives in Including Russia in Post-Cold War Euro-Atlantic Security Co-operation". The International History Review, 22 December.Lundestad, Ingrid. 2015. "Turning Foe to Friend? US Objectives in Including Russia in Post-Cold War Euro-Atlantic Security Co-operation". The International History Review, 22 December.<p>​​​This article scrutinises four moments in the post-Cold War era where the United States engaged to include Russia in Euro-Atlantic security forums: the establishment of the North Atlantic Cooperation Council; Partnership for Peace; Permanent Joint Council; and the NATO-Russia Council. The overall puzzle is: why did consecutive US administrations aim to formalise co-operation between NATO and Russia? Current tensions highlight the issue's significance, yet in the literature, there is no study looking specifically at these episodes of US efforts to integrate Moscow. Building on a broad set of primary sources, this article determines what we can now know of US objectives concerning the role of Russia in Euro-Atlantic co-operation. It concludes that US objectives moved from seeking new and stable relations between former adversaries, to facilitating US objectives in the Euro-Atlantic context with NATO enlargement, to expressing more global interests in confronting emerging crises and challenges, amongst others in the war on terror. Co-operation was limited to where interests were overlapping. Russia would not be placed in a position to influence NATO as an alliance. US officials remained hopeful that co-operation with Russia was possible, and would benefit all. At the same time, decisions would serve US interests should relations sour.</p><p><a href="http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/07075332.2015.1096806"><strong>Go to Taylor&Francis Online to download the article (limited access)</strong></a></p>

"American Culture as 'High Culture': U.S. Cultural Diplomacy in Norway, 1950-65". In Nordic Cold War Studies, Aleksanteri Cold War Series<p>​<em>​​Nordic Cold War Cultures</em> explores representations of the cultural Cold War in the five Nordic countries. Taking into account various political contexts, the ten contributions—written by Nordic scholars—analyze the interaction between Nordic actors and the two superpowers, the United States and the Soviet Union through propaganda, cultural diplomacy, media narratives, civil defense programs, the role of intellectuals, and the politics of memory. The volume adds a depth to a narrative otherwise dominated by political and diplomatic approaches and creates insights into the cultural experiences of each Nordic country. It demonstrates how a combination of cultural and political approaches can help explain symbolic interactions and hierarchical relationships as well as elite and public perceptions of—and attitudes towards—the Cold War as an ideological struggle.</p><p><a target="_blank" href="http://www.helsinki.fi/aleksanteri/english/publications/presentations/coldwar_series/cws_2015_2_nordic.html">Go to Aleksanteri Institute's website for more information</a><br></p>
