Non-Military Aspects of European Security

  • Klaus Gottstein
Conference paper


Modern technology has made the world small and interconnected. Europe is even smaller, and it has very close links, in many respects, with all parts of the world. If one wants to travel from one African capital to another African capital, the fastest way is usually via London, Paris or Frankfurt. European security can only be seen within the global context. Europe cannot remain unaffected by catastrophes in other parts of the world. On the other hand, major catastrophes in Europe would also have dire consequences all over the globe.
