“Defense Implications for U.S. and NATO Policymakers and their Staffs.”

In late 2022 Prof. Steven Lobell of the University of Utah presented a Research Seminar, ‘The Power Dynamics of Near Crises,’ sponsored by SCGA in collaboration with the International School of the Scottish Government.

West Point Press has recently published the White Paper “Defense Implications for U.S. and NATO Policymakers and their Staffs.” which can be downloaded from the preceding link or directly via the button below.

The following quote is taken from the White Paper abstract:

Abstract: NATO leaders unveiled a new Strategic Concept during the Madrid Summit in June 2022, the first update to this important document since 2010. Despite the dramatic changes in the strategic environment over the past twelve years, NATO’s three core tasks remain essentially the same. One important update is a new focus on “crisis prevention and management,” rather than simply “crisis management.” This paper argues that in an era of proliferating and increasingly complex threats, crisis prevention is more important than ever.
