    A map of European nuclear installations.
  • NATO
    In the post-Cold War world, NATO is struggling to redefine itself as a global peacemaker - in reality it is a war machine drifting beyond democratic control. This section analyses its history and examines its role in recent conflicts.
  • Militarisation of Europe
    The great post-war dream of a Europe united in peace is growing increasingly distant as hawks seek to twist the union into a militarised global superpower to rival the US and China.

  • Resistance to Militarisation
    Across Europe campaigners are resisting militarisation and NATO. In an increasingly interconnected world with a steadily mounting democratic deficit, direct action and cooperation is the only solution.
