Undersea Warfare in Northern Europe
Russia is expanding its use of undersea warfare as part of a broader strategy of coercion aimed at its neighbors and the United States. Suspected territorial incursions in the Baltic Sea and provocative patrols in the North Atlantic have not only caused alarm among NATO and partner nations, but have underscored the extent to which U.S. and European anti-submarine warfare (ASW) capabilities have atrophied since the end of the Cold War.
Please join the International Security Program for the launch of Undersea Warfare in Northern Europe, a new report that examines Russian intentions and capabilities, assesses the current ability of NATO and partner nations to meet the Russian challenge in the undersea domain, and provides some recommendations as to how NATO and partner nations can better address resurgent Russian undersea activity moving forward. This event will include a presentation of the reports key findings and recommendations to be followed by a discussion of these issues with a panel of experts.
