The NATO Association is proud to present its most recent special publication, Towards Coexistence and Cooperation: NATO and China.

This three-part publication seeks to bridge the understanding of strategic priorities and values between NATO and China and determine pathways for peaceful coexistence.

Click the image to read the second report under this publication titled “NATO Looks East:
Adapting to China’s Challenges and Opportunities” by Juliana Schneider and Olivia Compton. Together they argue that NATO needs to reassess its values for a new era and mend its internal divisions before elaborating upon its China strategy. The report also argues that NATO’s China strategy should focus on both traditional and non-traditional defence mechanisms, increasing engagement with global partners, deterrence, and improving trust and communications with China.
