Transatlantic turbulence – implications for European security
This report illuminates the driving forces and logic behind two separate but interlinked events: the Trump administration’s foreign policy agenda and the UK’s decision to leave the European Union.
Together, these developments have rocked the two pillars of European security: the transatlantic link and European integration. In order to gauge the breadth of possible effects, as well as possible ways to mitigate these effects, four security domains were analysed in relation to Brexit as well as the Trump administration: defence, cyber security, Intelligence cooperation and resilience. In this final section, overarching trends and possible spin-off effects are discussed with a specific eye on security in northern Europe.
