At the Madrid Summit this past summer, NATO Leaders made significant and transformative choices that established the Alliance's near- and long-term strategic orientation with the 2030 Strategic Concept. The latest Strategic Concept was issued twelve years ago, but Russia's invasion of Ukraine continues to heighten Europe's security posture. As NATO members respond to the prospect of Russian aggression, implementing the NATO 2030 strategy signals a fundamental change in securitizing the Euro-Atlantic space for the next decade.

In this episode, Dr. Nele Marianne Ewers-Peters, and Ed Arnold discuss the 2030 Strategic Concept and its implications. Dr. Ewers-Peter is a lecturer at the Universität der Bundeswehr and a researcher who focuses on relations between member states and institutions. Ed Arnold is a Research Fellow at Royal United Services Institute focusing on European Security. His governmental and business sector experience includes defense, intelligence, counterterrorism, and counterinsurgency.

The Europe Desk is a podcast from the BMW Center for German and European Studies at Georgetown University in Washington, DC. It brings together leading experts working on the most pertinent issues facing Europe and transatlantic relations today.
