New NATO division to deal with Emerging Security Challenges

A new Divi­sion with­in the NATO Inter­na­tion­al Staff has been cre­at­ed in order to deal with a grow­ing range of non-tra­di­tion­al risks and chal­lenges. The new Emerg­ing Secu­ri­ty Chal­lenges Divi­sion (ESCD) start­ed its work begin­ning of August and will be focus­ing notably on ter­ror­ism, the pro­lif­er­a­tion of Weapons of Mass Destruc­tion, cyber defence, and ener­gy secu­ri­ty.

The new divi­sion will also pro­vide NATO with a Strate­gic Analy­sis Capa­bil­i­ty to mon­i­tor and antic­i­pate inter­na­tion­al devel­op­ments that could affect Allied secu­ri­ty.

The Emerg­ing Secu­ri­ty Chal­lenges Divi­sion brings togeth­er var­i­ous strands of exper­tise already exis­tant in dif­fer­ent parts of NATO Head­quar­ters. Merg­ing this work into one Divi­sion will give it greater focus and vis­i­bil­i­ty.

The cre­ation of the ESCD under­lines the deter­mi­na­tion to move new, non-tra­di­tion­al secu­ri­ty chal­lenges to the cen­tre of Allied atten­tion.
