CSIS conducts extensive research and analysis on the future of NATO, emerging threat patterns, and European security and defense dynamics with an emphasis on Northern Europe and the Eastern Mediterranean region. Recently, this work has focused on assessing the impact on European security of Russia’s heightened military activity and aggression in the region. The Europe Program has provided a forum for the NATO secretary general and several European defense ministers to engage policymakers on transatlantic security cooperation. This regional focus is also manifested through the work of the International Security Program.
