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.
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.
