NATO Is Critical for Security Against Threats by 'Non-State Actors,' Says East/West Institute's Istvan Gyarmati

Istvan Gyarmati, senior vice president of the East/West Institute, says the rise of terrorism has created "non-state actors which do not behave like states, which cannot be influenced like states, which are not subjects of international law, but which have instruments to impact international relations on states." For security against these threats, "the best we've got is NATO ... because otherwise the United States will run out of resources and Europeans will not be able to defend themselves alone," he says in a lecture cosponsored by the Harriman Institute and the Institute for the Study of Europe.
