Strategic, political, industrial and arms control implications


The United States Government plans to deploy 10 interceptors in Poland and a radar installation in the Czech Republic. This has caused a stir in political and military circles in both Europe and Russia. This study examines the US proposals and their possible implications for Europe. It makes an assessment of the degree to which defences might enhance European security and sets out the parameters of a European approach towards missile defence.

Studio preparato da ISIS Europe per conto della sottocommissione sulla sicurezza e la difesa del Parlamento europeo.
