Israel and the Challenge of Multilateral Security Governance: From Resistance to Cautious Engagement
This paper has two aims. First, it will outline the factors behind Israeli thinking and its approach to multilateral security governance. Second, it discusses the emerging debate within Israel on the importance of multilateral security governance, focusing in particular on the increasing interest within the security establishment on fostering closer ties with NATO. At a later stage, a number of ideas will be developed about how the value of multilateral security governance can be promoted within Israel, and on the potential role of the European Union in supporting such efforts.
