Since the Libya War in 2011 it has been widely suggested that NATO's role in US security policy has diminished, because Washington gives Europe less and Asia more strategic priority (a tendency that is reinforced by budget restraints), and because the US is no longer interested in always leading NATO activities that mainly concern European conditions. Several experts have suggested that the US expect that the European security challenges primarily should be handled by NATO's European allies in a new transatlantic burden sharing model, and that the US role should principally be Article V-focused. This book investigates to what extent these claims are valid, and what consequences they may have for European and international security.

NATO’s 2010 Strategic Concept officially broadened the alliance’s mission beyond collective defense, reflecting a peaceful Europe and changes in alliance activities. NATO had become an international security facilitator, a crisis-manager even outside Europe, and a liberal democratic club as much as a mutual-defense organization. However, Russia’s re-entry into great power politics has changed NATO’s strategic calculus. Russia’s aggressive annexation of Crimea in 2014 and its ongoing military support for Ukrainian separatists dramatically altered the strategic environment and called into question the liberal European security order. States bordering Russia, many of which are now NATO members, are worried, and the alliance is divided over assessments of Russia’s behavior. Against the backdrop of Russia’s new assertiveness, an international group of scholars examines a broad range of issues in the interest of not only explaining recent alliance developments but also making recommendations about critical choices confronting the NATO allies. While a renewed emphasis on collective defense is clearly a priority, this volume’s contributors caution against an overcorrection, which would leave the alliance too inwardly focused, play into Russia’s hand, and exacerbate regional fault lines always just below the surface at NATO. This volume places rapid-fire events in theoretical perspective and will be useful to foreign policy students, scholars, and practitioners alike.

This book presents a cutting edge analysis of NATO's current position, role and importance during this period of geopolitical change and crisis in the international order. The rules-based international order is in serious crisis. Revisionist and authoritarian major powers such as China and Russia pose external challenges to this order, seeking to expand their territorial boundaries and �spheres of influence�, undermine institutions, and suppress liberal values such as human rights. Traditional geopolitics is making a comeback, deeply affecting European and transatlantic security. In addition, the United States appears to be retreating from its historical role as an anchor of the Western liberal order. Newly elected President Donald Trump has not only openly questioned the fundamental precepts of the liberal order itself. During his first visit to Brussels in May 2017, he also refused to confirm Article 5 of the North Atlantic Treaty � leaving European allies in doubt about America�s commitment to NATO. The Trump administration also seems to intend to increase pressure on NATO allies to pay more for their own defence. Moreover, populist movements touting anti-globalist, nationalistic, xenophobic and neo-mercantilist policies have grown in popularity across liberal democracies. However, the question facing NATO now is how to adapt to the geopolitical changes and transatlantic uncertainty. Against this background, the main objectives of the book are to describe and analyse the risks and dangers NATO faces in the current strategic environment, and to discuss how NATO can readjust to those challenges, and why NATO is very likely capable of doing so. The book will make an original contribution to the existing literature on NATO and transatlantic relations, because it will discuss the latest developments within NATO since the Trump administration took office and since it will be highly policy-relevant. This book will be of interest to students and policymakers of NATO, geopolitics, international order, transatlantic security, security studies and IR in general.

This book examines the continuing US commitments to NATO in the post-Cold War era. The initial focus is on the recommitment decisions of the Clinton administration. It also extensively explores the US operations in Kosovo, Afghanistan and, in particular, Libya. The case study on Libya is especially important in exploring the Obama administration’s understanding of the purpose of NATO in the context of current economic pressures, domestic US debates about post-War on Terror interventions, and of increasing American preoccupation with Pacific rather than European security. The author utilises substantial archival research and interviews with policymakers and academics, including Ambassador Kethleen Stephens, former Special Assistant to the President Stephen J. Flanagan, and former Director for Non-proliferation at National Security Council Robert S. Litwak. This book is ideal for postgraduate researchers and academics in US foreign policy, foreign policy decision-making, transatlantic relations and NATO, as well as a great use to undergraduate students.

Understanding NATO in the 21st Century enhances existing strategic debates and clarifies thinking as to the direction and scope of NATO's potential evolution in the 21st century. The book seeks to identify the possible contours and trade-offs embedded within a potential third "Transatlantic Bargain" in the context of a U.S. strategic pivot in a "Pacific Century". To that end, it explores the internal adaptation of the Alliance, evaluates the assimilation of NATO's erstwhile adversaries, and provides a focus on NATO's operational future and insights into the new threats NATO faces and its responses. Each contribution follows a similar broad tripartite structure: an examination of the historical context in which the given issue or topic has evolved; an identification and characterization of key contemporary policy debates and drivers that shape current thinking; and, on that basis, a presentation of possible future strategic pathways or scenarios relating to the topic area. This book will appeal to students of NATO, international security and international relations in general.
