Europe and North America

FOI's security policy research on Europe and North America is mainly performed in the project ASEK. ASEK is the Swedish acronym for Atlantic Security and European Crisis Management , and it is a multi-year programme at FOI which is funded by the Swedish Ministry of Defence.

Examples of questions that we are studying include:


  • The development of the EU’s Common Security and Defence Policy, CSDP.
  • NATO’s future development.
  • Relations between the EU and NATO.
  • The United States’ foreign and defence policy.
  • The defence and security policy of individual European states with regard to the EU and NATO.
