Why are the long-term security consequences of Climate Change not talked about extensively in (geo)political & defensive strategies of NATO or the EU? And (how) should NATO or the EU member-states combat this threat effectively to guarantee a safer future?
The latest publication addresses these and other questions. In this article Jurre Kok argues that there is an underrepresentation of Climate Security in Western security strategies. He furthermore proposes the first steps in solving the problem, e.g. the EU discarding the unanimity clause regarding security and defense policy to better Europe’s geopolitical position!
