NATO's European Allies: Military Capability and Political Will
- Monday, Oct 15, 2012
A discussion about the military capabilities and political willingness to use force of NATO's European allies.
A CSIS book event with:
Professor in Modern History, Norwegian Defense University College
Janne Haaland Matlary
Professor of Political Science, University of Oslo
and the Norwegian Military Staff College
to discuss the new publication
"NATO's European Allies:
Military Capability and Political Will"
America's policy of rebalancing toward the Asia-Pacific region, declining European defense budgets, economic malaise and Afghanistan war fatigue provide the backdrop for a timely discussion about the future capabilities of NATO's European allies. Which European allies are politically willing and able to undertake future military operations? What actions are needed to reform European military spending away from non-deployable assets to deployable, interoperable forces? Moderated by CSIS Europe Program Director Heather Conley, the discussion with Professors Petersson and Matlary provide a European perspective on these issues as they assess the drivers for the use of force among NATO allies, including history, political culture, economy, and threat perceptions.
