The AUKUS security partnership between Australia, the US and UK may have far-reaching implications for the future strategic balance in Asia, where both NATO and Europe have strong interests. Most importantly, through the partnership, the US and UK will provide Australia the technology to build nuclear-powered submarines. What does this new partnership mean for the security situation in Asia and the great power rivalry with China? What might the implications be for US-European relations? And what does it mean for nuclear non-proliferation?
