From Atlantic to the Indo-Pacific
The Indo-Pacific region has recently become a focus for Germany and its allies: opportunities for economic prosperity and political cooperation mix with the risk of rising tensions and worries over maritime security. Meanwhile, the North Atlantic and Arctic Sea remain a concern at the doorsteps of NATO. Planning and designing future capacities and roles do not only depend on political will; circumstances such as the changing climate and trade routes that have come under pressure from Covid-19 must also be addressed. How should Allied naval forces navigate those waters of fulfilling their classical commitments while also staying alert to new threats?
