Emerging Security Challenges, Security Environment, Strategic Environment, Strategic Situational Awareness, Threat Assessment
Since 2014, strategic security environment has dramatically changed driven by the rapid rate of technological advancements; political, economic, social and environmental developments that increased complexity and uncertainty. NATO’s strategic assumptions have also changed, and they will continue to be challenged. The complexity and rapid rate of change require in-depth understanding of the future strategic environment that is one of the main drivers of the Alliance’s adaptation, to ensure NATO’s military capacity with especially its command structure remains fit for purpose. There are efforts to anticipate and develop an understanding of the future security environment such as Strategic Foresight Analysis and Framework for Future Alliance Operations. However, there is no unified code that could be applied and used by NATO and Nations.
