Baltic Security Strategy Report

What the Baltics Can Offer for a Stronger Alliance

Edited by Olevs Nikers and Otto Tabuns

The Baltic Security Strategy Report provides an indepth security review of the Baltic countries

of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. As highlighted in this important work, the Baltic States’ various national and

collective strategies to address recurring regional threats since achieving statehood over a hundred years ago

present notable case studies useful to contemporary policymakers and defense planners.

Scholars Olevs

Nikers and Otto Tabuns based this report on a series of discussions and workshops involving key European and

American experts and stakeholders engaged in Baltic regional security matters. The participating experts

assessed current challenges pertaining to defense and deterrence, societal security, economic security and cyber

security. In addition to exploring the security considerations of each of the three Baltic States, the workshop

discussions and resulting papers collected in this report specifically examine avenues of subregional

cooperation that may prove more potent than individual national effort in certain fields. Consequently, the

authors provide a detailed list of recommendations on how to proceed with a more coherent, goaloriented, and

efficient regional cooperation strategy that serves to buttress the security of each of the Baltic States and

the Transatlantic community more broadly.

The report is a rich guide to issues and opportunities of Baltic

intraregional security, and a valuable resource for policymakers, advisors, scholars and defensesector

professionals on both sides of the Atlantic.
