EU MONITOR: Three Crucial Moments in European Security in 2019

Louis Cox-Brusseau published an EU Monitor, in which he focuses on three Crucial Moments in European Security in 2019.

2019 will be regarded with hindsight as a pivotal year for European security. In the space of twelve months, the European political scene has changed significantly and seen a host of fresh challenges and complications emerge that may make the coming five-year cycle in European politics a very transformative time indeed. With the election of a new European executive and parliament, ongoing tensions in the transatlantic relationship, severe challenges emerging for NATO both within and without its membership, and the sudden certainty of Brexit in the next six weeks following the landslide result of the United Kingdom’s December election, it is clear that 2019 has been as turbulent as it has been dramatic.
