  • Structured around the concepts of ‘Atlantic’, ‘Core’, ‘New’ ‘Non-aligned’ and ‘Periphery’ Europe that have emerged in the wake of these disputes.
  • Identifies the trends and factors that have driven and could further propel the Euro-Atlantic security community towards different futures.
  • Analyses the security policy implications of each scenario for states within this region.
