Proving a Negative: Deterrence Does Not Work in the Baltics
Deterrence does not work in the Baltics writes our colleague, Matus Halas, in his article for European Security, in which he shows that the situation in the Baltics for NATO is not exactly the best."The increased Russian foreign policy assertiveness and the related security concerns associated with the Eastern Flank of NATO caused a revival of interest in European deterrence after more than two decades of neglect. Yet the absence of a military invasion into the Baltics does not necessarily imply a successful deterrent threat."
