In modern international politics, the growing military militaristic policies of the states have created many dangers and raised the need for NATO to address new issues that the Alliance did not face during the Cold War. NATO's main task is to safeguard the Alliance's security, develop and update new strategic concepts as new strategies respond accurately to existing and emerging threats, risks and challenges. As for instance, the proliferation of goods and technologies used to build WMDs and their delivery systems create a threat to global stability and security, particularly taking into account the situation in the world entering the era of terrorism and extremism. It should have the goal of minimizing the risks to its national and global security in accordance with its obligations under the non-proliferation regimes aimed at countering illegal movement of strategic goods and hazardous materials.

This book reflects and sheds light on the difficult geopolitical and geostrategic conditions and reviews how new types of warfare, such as 4GW, has a drastic impact on NATO’s military and defense doctrines. The book presents the newest data and theories that will contribute to the understanding of the transformation of regional security environments in aegis of the Euro-Atlantic community. It is targeted toward students and teaching staff at higher educational institutions, policy makers, government officials, government agencies, security analysts, and researchers.
