The increasing connectivity in the world leads to the fact that the boundaries between internal and external security are blurring. Climate change and resource shortages combined with demographic growth and weak statehood can lead to conflict and instability around the world.
At the same time, transatlantic relations are changing. The task of improving European security lies primarily at European level, but there should be resources available. European countries together with the United States are responsible for peace and security in the world. In this regard, the two EU and NATO alliances will have to continue to carry out joint actions but should also be able to act autonomously if necessary on the use of global goods.
