Key Lessons, Insights, and Recommendations
Military mobility – the ability to move forces and equipment quickly and safely across Europe – is indispensable for the transatlantic Alliance and essential to credible deterrence. But, NATO currently lacks the capacity to deliver seamless military mobility. While Allied leaders have recognized the need for improvement, there are still significant gaps, misunderstandings, and unknowns. To shed light on these issues and strengthen the Alliance’s defense and deterrence posture, CEPA has spearheaded a special Military Mobility Workshop.
Over the last several weeks, CEPA convened an unprecedented array of interdisciplinary experts and practitioners from the military, industry, and policymaking communities to troubleshoot issues around military mobility in Europe. Participants worked through strategic, operational, and tactical considerations to achieve mobility across five key geographic scenarios: Nordic-Baltic, Suwałki Corridor, Focșani Gate, Western Balkans, and Libya. During this event, the workshop leaders will present the key findings and recommendations from the scenario exercises. Bringing together transatlantic officials and a wide-ranging audience responsible for implementing mobility, the discussions will be a unique opportunity to chart the way forward for improving military mobility in Europe.
