Valdai Paper #17: The New Atlanticism

25.05.2015

The 17th Valdai paper is devoted to analysis of the new notion of Atlanticism, the alternative Atlantic security system, which has been developing since the end of the Cold war.

The author explores the transformation of NATO as well as the EU into the Atlantic community. In recent years the international and security dimension of the EU has effectively merged with the Atlantic security.

Giving a detailed analysis of the new Atlanticism, the author draws a conclusion that this concept forms the basis for the assessment of the security challenges facing Europe and the world.

The author of the paper is Richard Sakwa, Professor of Russian and European Politics, University of Kent at Canterbury; Associate Fellow, Russia and Eurasia Programme, Royal Institute of International Affairs (Chatham House).
