New books on European security

25 years since the end of the Cold War, three edited books discuss three different perspectives on European security.

Paal Hilde and Andrew Michta (eds.): The Future of NATO
The book Future of NATO analyses the challenges facing the North Atlantic alliance in the changing security environment. 

The question of NATO’s regional versus global roles is the core theme, and the international contributors analyse issues such as NATO’s place in US global security interests, the Alliance’s relations with Russia, and institutional change in NATO.

Robin Allers, Carlo Masala and Rolf Tamnes (eds.): Common or Divided Security?


The editors of Common or Divided Security? have asked German and Norwegian scholars to assess specific challenges to European security. Can EU and NATO assure western unity or can we see a trend towards fragmentation and renationalisation?

The book emphasises differences in the strategic outlook of a Scandinavian small state and one of Europe’s leading powers, but also shows similarities between the two.

Rolf Tamnes and Kristine Offerdal (eds.): Geopolitics and Security in the Arctic

Finally, the edited volume Geopolitics and Security in the Arctic brings the question of security and cooperation to the most remote part of Europe – the Arctic. 

Norwegian and international scholars identify the conditions for cooperation, stability and peace in the High North. Which are the main factors that will determine the future of international relations in the region?
