Terrorism linked to Islamist extremism in the Middle East, Africa, and the sub-continent, including the phenomenon of foreign fighters, will head the list of “intermestic” challenges facing the transatlantic partners in the years ahead. Human security and the criminal trafficking in migrants will also be part of this equation, with significant social and political implications for Europe and North America. Publics on both sides of the Atlantic will rightly expect their governments, the EU, and NATO to assist in the management of these challenges. Countering terrorism will be a key test for transatlantic adaptation to the new security environment.
