Powrót odstraszania w Europie. Od teorii do praktyki
Return of Deterence to Europe: From Theory to Practice
Languages of publication
The theoretical foundations of the deterrence concept were developed during the Cold War and used by the U.S. and NATO to reduce the risk of military confrontation with the USSR. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, the West transformed its strategy, but Russia’s aggressive policy forced NATO to reinstate deterrence policy. The aim of the article is to present the main aspects of deterrence theory, describe the nature of the conflict situation in post-Cold War Europe and suggest the force elements which NATO can credibly apply to limit the risk of confrontation with Russia.
