Stefan Fröhlich in Foreign Affairs
On March 15, 2017, Foreign Affairs published an op-ed by Transatlantic Academy Senior Fellow Stefan Fröhlich with Luke Coffey of the Heritage Foundation and Sigurd Neubauer of the Arab Gulf States Institute, entitled "NATO's Northern Alliance." The piece focuses on German-British-Norwegian defense cooperation. "Enhanced German-Norwegian-U.K. cooperation at sea and in the skies could help strengthen NATO’s deterrence against Russian nuclear submarines while providing the necessary political space for the remaining NATO countries to upgrade their respective capabilities as part of an effort to strengthen the alliance," the authors write. "The proposed enhanced interoperability among the three countries—in partnership with the United States—would also symbolize that NATO reform is indeed under way, which in turn could have a positive impact on the rest of the alliance as it grapples with pressure on how to identify and ultimately implement concrete policy goals over time."
