  • “Engagement or Mistrust?” Review of the book, “Riga Dialogue: Towards a Shared Security Environment"
    European security by further isolating Russia or bringing Russia into the European fold the common denominator amongst all proposals in the book is that the proposals can be acted upon tomorrow if necessary Most contributors also criticize the Euro Atlantic security approach of the last 25 years that has been piecemeal and has fallen behind political economic and technological developments pg 81 Steven Andreasen IISS So what s stopping European policymakers from implementing the much needed security forms recommended in this book The fact that there is no real unified European consensus on what constitutes security or how to achieve it poses the greatest boundary to reforming European security doctrine Russia has been exploiting this disunity and mistrust within Europe dividing European countries by offering preferential bilateral economic relations and political support for some pg 40 Margarita Seslgyte Vilnius University Advancing pan European policy must be difficult when the Baltic nations and Germany for example do not see Russia the same way Russia is a rational acting country claimed an adamant Dr Reinhard Krumm Friedrich Ebert representative from his seat at the Sept 4 panel But a contributor in the very book Dr Krumm was introducing claims that trusting Russia in the same way we trust other rational nations would allow Russia to engage in rogue behavior This is not just undesirable but dangerous and confirms the lingering suspicions that European leaders are neither strategic nor sagacious in their approach to contemporary Russia pg 72 Anke Schmidt Felzmann LIIA visiting researcher in 2015 Though the book and the panelists focused almost exclusively on Russia as the chief security threat to Europe there was a moment in Dr Andris Spruds s opening remarks at the Sept 4 panel that touched on the turmoil within Europe caused by the refugee crisis Dr Spruds editor of Riga Dialogue Towards a Shared Security Environment writes in his introduction to the book the question of whether we are experiencing an emerging new world dis order has not been solely driven by the conflict in Ukraine pg 7 Indeed both the immigration crisis and Russia s actions in Ukraine caught Euro Atlantic security organizations flat footed without an actionable plan for resolution to the crises The challenges to European security are a thinly veiled challenge to European unity and the Riga Dialogue book s solutions to European security are similarly solutions to disunity within Europe This is not to say that Europe has always failed to act in unison when it comes to continental security Panelists at the Sept 4 book release rightly praised the European sanctions against Russia as proof that Europe can find common interests around which to rally But without a basis of common norms rules and values we will always be far away from a truly stable Europe writes contributor Karsten Voigt p 76 Of course in writing this he means to disabuse his readers of the idea that Russia could one day be wholly and unconditionally trusted in the European security
