Foreword. TPQ’s Summer issue, NATO in 2020 and Beyond: New Strategies and Frontiers, offers insights on the Alliance’s current challenges and future security trends, while offering a look into Euro-Atlantic relations in the coming decade.

NATO’s Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic. “While NATO is not a first responder to a health crisis, it has played an important role to make sure this health crisis does not become a security crisis,” writes Baiba Braze.

Turkey, NATO, and the Future of the Transatlantic Relationship. “A policy choice by some NATO allies to isolate Turkey, while they expect it to bear the burdens of contributing to the Alliance, is not fair but also counterproductive and not very wise,” writes Gülnur Aybet.

Ukraine, NATO, and Russia. “Although NATO-Ukraine cooperation has intensified, and the Alliance maintains its ‘open door’ policy, NATO members appear reluctant to put Ukraine on a membership track,” writes Steven Pifer.

Georgia and NATO. “Without understanding its history, it would be impossible to determine why Georgia strives to join NATO, and why it has not succeeded so far,” writes Giorgi Badridze.

Cooperation Between China and NATO. “China must act delicately in order to build stronger ties with the Alliance, while also maintaining its relations with Russia,” write Wang Yiwei & Wu Xinze.

NATO’s Digital Public Diplomacy. “NATO has responded to the crisis by developing a narrative that seeks to provide reassurance that the Alliance has remained fully operational during the pandemic, and that it has redoubled its efforts to come to the assistance of its members and allies,” write Corneliu Bjola & Ilan Manor.

Macedonia in NATO. “Contrary to the previous belief that NATO membership would bring better international standing, more foreign investments, and internal economic progress, the reality displays a different picture,” writes Biljana Vankovska.

The End of Nuclear Arms Control. “Even though the Trump Administration says otherwise, reintroducing US ground-launched intermediate-range missiles to Europe becomes more likely now that the INF Treaty is dead,” writes Ulrich Kühn.

Turkey and the Idlib Crisis. “Idlib has emerged as a major stress test on Turkey’s Syria policy, as several high-stake issues overlapped around the fate of the small territory,” writes Şaban Kardaş.

The Myths and Conspiracy Theories Around Oil Markets. “If OPEC is essentially a paper tiger, then how has it managed to maintain a reputation for being the bane of western economies,” asks Omar Al-Ubaydli.

US-China Competition in Cyberspace. “The US and China’s perception of the other in cyberspace began to shift in the early 2010s, when a political disagreement regarding online information emerged,” write Lyu Jinghua & Gaurav Kalwani.

Economic Effects of Artificial Intelligence. “We will most likely be exposed to AI technologies much more in the upcoming decades as AI changes production methods, consumer behaviors, and the employment-to-population ratio,” writes Türksoy Emen.

Turkey’s Role in China’s Strategy in the Middle East. “As political and economic rivalry between the US and China accelerates in the Middle East, Turkey, an important regional actor, can help shift the balance of power toward China,” writes Emrah Yıldırımçakar.

The Turkey-EU Customs Union. “With the emergence of global value chains, and the interdependence between trade, investment, and services, services trade has especially become important for both the EU and Turkey,” writes Roger Kelly.
