Militarization in the Baltic and the Arctic compared: The Arctic is the dangerous place

Research output: Other contributionNet publication - Internet publicationCommunication

The Arctic will not be a peaceful exception in a militarized world. I compare the security situation in the Baltic and the Arctic. Both regions are militarized these days, but in very different ways. The most dangerous dynamics are in the Arctic, where nuclear deterrence between Russia and the United States is the primary driver of militarization. It will probably get worse in the coming years.
