Europe’s Convergence of Crises: The Transatlantic Community Responds to Refugee Waves and Russian Advances

The 52nd Munich Security Conference (12th February 2016) was dominated by two issues: Russia’s threat to eastern Europe, and Syria’s ongoing civil war.

Discussion of the latter also was marked by the inherent threats to Europe, from the flow of Middle Eastern refugees to the growing aggressiveness of the so-called Islamic State.

Experts warn that Europe is facing a convergence of crises unseen since World War II. While these warnings may be exaggerated, it it is undeniable that the European Union and even NATO are facing internal as well as external challenges.

Anti-Europe parties are growing in many key nations, feeding on myopic nostalgia for the “safety and stability” provided by national border checkpoints and national currencies. And last but not least, where does all this leave the Transatlantic Alliance?

Project 1704

The strategic calculus changed in Europe with the 2014 Russian seizure of Crimea and its ongoing war against Ukraine. Moscow has laced its aggression with a  veil of ambiguity in order to prevent a decisive Western response. However, this ambiguity is easily defeated, if nations are willing to take concerted efforts now to preempt and deter further Russian aggression. Project 1704 assesses the tenuous strategic environment that now envelopes Eastern Europe and offers specific recommendations on how to preserve peace and stability in Europe.  More Information / To Order
