Security prospects in the High North. Geostrategic thaw or freeze? is a collection of essays on some of the issues that in the years and decades ahead will be instrumental in definning the Arctic security enironment. It comes on the occasion of the 60th Anniversary of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) as the Alliance takes stock of the prevailing and projected security environment ant its role within it, including in the High North. At the time of writing, a new Declaration on Alliance Security is in the offing, and a new Strategic Concept perhaps not far off. So this volume may be considered a contribution to a much wider debate about NATO's purpose as a political-military security organisation in the early 21st Century.
