Challenges that Trans-Atlantic Region Faces and How NATO and the EU Could Tackle Them
There is an urgent need to address challenges that Trans-Atlantic region faces, and to offer ways to overcome them. The old continent entered into a new phase in its history when Russia illegally annexed Crimea. Academia and defence and security practitioners revisit Cold War dynamics. Hybrid practises pose multi-dimensional threats to our nations and societies. Battlefield is widened when new domains such as cyber and space has been added to the existing ones. Illiberalism is on the rise, even in Europe. Just to make things worse, disarrange and disorder around Europe, particularly in MENA region creates irregular migration on a huge scale. Frustration fuels terrorism on one side, (right-wing) extremism on the other.
As means, NATO and the EU provide options for nations to tackle challenges with their unique capabilities. However, to deal with these multi-faceted challenges and to keep up with the pace of change, adaptation and cooperation is a must.
