Elvire Fabry citée dans le Christian Science Monitor à propos du rôle de l'Otan après la crise ukrainienne
Elvire Fabry, chercheur sénior sur les actions extérieures de l'UE, est citée dans un article du Christian Science Monitor, le 26 mars 2014, à propos du rôle que pourrait jouer l'Otan après la crise ukrainienne.
Still, as long as the confrontation between Russia and the West remains economic and political, not military, it might have little long-term impact on European attitudes towards NATO and the use of military force, says Elvire Fabry, a senior research fellow at Notre Europe - Jacques Delors Institute in Paris. And national governments will remain constrained by slow economic growth. “But it is increasing the perception that Europeans will remain exposed to important risks to their security and need to be well-prepared,” she says.
Nor is it clear that NATO forces are prepared for any confrontation in Europe. US Air Force Gen. Philip Breedlove said over the weekend, as quoted by Reuters, that Russia’s actions should lead the alliance to rethink the readiness of its forces in Eastern Europe. So far NATO has deployed AWACS surveillance planes to its eastern borders. Many have called on NATO to engage in more exercises to underline its commitments to security in the region.
