The European Union and the Changing Security Dynamics in Europe
A combination of changed borders and a shift in the political and security landscape of Europe with the rise of non-traditional threats has posed new challenges to the European Union (EU) since the end of Cold War. Ummu Salma Bava examines the EU as the lead actor, offering an overview of the kind of measures it has taken to address the new security challenges. The chapter is divided into four sections: (1) The Post-Cold War Period and the Decline of Traditional Threats, 1990–2000; (2) 9/11 and the Rise of New and Non-Traditional Security Threats, 2000–2009; (3) The Lisbon Treaty and the Global Strategy: Reconfiguring the EU to Changing Security Dynamics; (4) EU–India Relations: Enhancing the Security Partnership.
