The challenge from Russian political and military ambitions is evolving rapidly on NATO’s northern and eastern flanks. In the Arctic, climate change and the expansion of navigable waters is bringing growing military interest into the region.  On the Black Sea, Russia continues its militarisation of what it regards as its inland sea with reorganisation and build-up of naval, air and land forces.

LSE IDEAS joins the New Strategy Center Bucharest (NSC) and NUPI for a comprehensive update on the challenges to NATO in the Arctic and Black Sea. The conference is part of the research project FLANKS.
