Europe’s maritime security challenges have markedly changed in recent years. From a resurgence in great power competition with Russia prompting interest in recapitalizing conventional warfighting skills and capabilities to conducting humanitarian operations to save the lives of desperate refugees, European maritime forces have had to adapt to an increase in demand across the full spectrum of operations. CIMSEC will feature a topic week during the final week of March to analyze the various developments and challenges that confront Europe in the maritime domain. Submissions can assess naval missions and modernization programs of various navies, how NATO’s maritime forces are working to deter Russia, humanitarian and irregular warfighting operations, and other topics relevant to European maritime security.
Editor’s Note: This topic week has since concluded, and its articles may be viewed here.
