This one – by Dr. Karl-Heinz Kamp, head of research at the NATO Defense College, is an excellent read.
This new paper by the NDC Research Division deals with the future of the transatlantic link after Chicago. It defines the challenges for the Alliance as a result of the financial crisis, arguing in favour of “Smart Reductions” (in addition to Smart Defence), of keeping up NATO’s interoperability, and of a broader strategic perspective which some of the European Allies are lacking.
For your consideration.
