Fortress Europe: militarisation and border control

11:45am Fri 29 Mar

About this session

Following the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the fortunes of NATO – pronounced "braindead" only a few years prior – have been miraculously revived. The alliance, buoyed by surging European military budgets and inflows of combat-ready troops and cutting-edge hardware, looks forward to welcoming additional member states. This militarisation of Europe will only add further fuel to an increasingly unstable international system riven with political tensions. This talk will explore why European militarism is on the rise and the dangers it poses for the future.
