Missile Defense: Challenges and Opportunities for NATO
This paper analyzes the challenges and opportunities for NATO as it develops a new policy on missile defense. After having been extensively discussed in NATO during the Bush-Administration, missile defense seems to have disappeared from the Alliance's current security agenda. Instead, there is a public perception that President Obama has deeply cut America's plans to build up a defense shield against ballistic missiles and has almost put an end to the plans of his predecessor.
