The UK and the Western alliance: NATO in the new era of realpolitik

This paper argues that current events, from Russian aggression to the EU’s internal politics, mean that NATO is weakening at a time when security challenges are growing. As such, the paper outlines the need for a new grand strategic rethink for NATO that addresses its role in the Western alliance more broadly, and that Britain, as the alliance’s “foremost European champion”, should be leading those discussions.
