A NATO e os desafios até 2030

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review



This paper and communication is two folded. Firstly, it analyses the key factors conditioning the ongoing world geopolitical dynamics and its impact in the West and particularly in NATO; secondly it focuses on the multiple new emerging challenges to the Alliance, and how NATO should adapt in order to cope with the threats of the upcoming decade. The paper argues for a role shift of the Alliance towards an international actor with global ‘dual track’ responsibility,i.e. to continue ensuring the defence of the Allied Members and deterrence of threats, but at the same time, serve as a democratic agent to promote and sponsor global stability. As a result, this work recommends a stronger relationship architecture between NATO and the EU, focused on the development of integrated capability development programs, as well as shared tactics, techniques and procedures, necessary to counter the multidimensional new rising threats.
