Monthly Alert: Vital European and Dutch Security Interests

June 9th 2017 - 12:30

The Vital European and Dutch Security Interests Alert considers key security discourses of principal stakeholders concerning vital European and Dutch security interests. Documents such as the Strategie Nationale Veiligheid, de Internationale Veiligheidsstrategie, Defense Strategy publications, the NATO Strategic Concept and the EU Global Strategy serve as the basis for this Alert. Based on a monthly summary of emerging affairs gathered through an annotated list of publications from think tanks, academic outlets, and expert blogs, the Alert also considers more specific issues as they emerge in the Dutch security discourse.

Monthly Alerts are created by HCSS and the Clingendael Institute as part of the PROGRESS Strategic Monitor.

Authors: Karlijn Jans, Tim Sweijs, Kars de Bruijne, Minke Meijnders
