Horizon Scanning and Research
The NSD-S HUB supports NATO by enhancing its understanding of the dynamics in Africa and the Middle East through cooperation with regional actors. This is achieved through horizon scanning and the identification of challenges and opportunities which influence security and stability. The NSD-S HUB also assists NATO in harmonising their activities in the South.
Network of Regional Actors
We work to integrate the regional perspective into the NATO mindset through providing insights and recommendations. We cooperate with local and regional actors such as subject matter experts, academia, think tanks, IOs, NGOs and other institutions. By jointly building and sharing knowledge and experience within the network, a comprehensive picture of the challenges facing the South can be developed. The overall objective is to provide a strategic-level lens to better foresee, anticipate and, where possible, address challenging issues for the benefit of all.
