America’s foreign, security and defence policy affects the entire international system.
Despite the changing international balance of power and America’s global footprint, transatlantic relations, now as before, remain of particular importance to Norway. This is why it is so important to understand US strategic thinking and defence policy priorities.
The Norwegian Institute for Defence Studies has a long tradition of research into transatlantic politics. The aim of the Centre for Transatlantic Studies is to deliver in-depth analyses of selected but important aspects of US conduct on the international stage, applying both historical and political science approaches and concentrating on relations with Europe.
