The Significance of Day Zero

In the past NATO has continuously adapted itself to the changing security environment with the resources and the resolve to guarantee the Alliance’s security. Since the 2014 Ukraine crisis, NATO’s emphasis has returned to collective defense whilst taking a 360 degree approach to projecting stability and cooperative security given the wider understanding of interrelated crises and security challenges. Polarization within and between states, power politics and competition between major powers have increased the potential for instability. Other trends include state and non-state actors using hybrid and cyber tools to impact the security environment in the grey zone below the threshold of conflict. So today, the Alliance must engage in both collective defense and crisis management at the same time.

NATO-EU Relations and Day Zero Challenges

In keeping with their founding principles, the 28-member EU focuses mainly on economic issues while the 29-member NATO Alliance continues to be mostly defence-oriented. Over the years the aperture of each organization has expanded, prompting both champions & critics to highlight areas where the two organizations could and should cooperate better.
