Transboundary Environmental Problems: Risk Analysis and Practical Lessons

  • Gunnar Sjöstedt
Chapter

Abstract

Lately, environmental problems have often been referred to as elements of comprehensive security, or as new security issues, in the analysis of East-West relations in Europe. Paradoxically, environmental issues are at the same time increasingly becoming overshadowed by the ‘old’ military-security issues. These are now reemerging on the political agenda in Northern Europe in connection with the projects of enlarging NATO and the European Union towards Eastern and Central Europe.
