Vulnérabilités et recompositions baltiques : les conséquences d’une géopolitique insidieuse

Abstract : Since the mid 2000s, security issues, which had been evacuated after the fall of the Iron Curtain, have gradually resurfaced between Baltic partners. The 2014 Crimean crisis fueled fears about the Russian threat. Unlike Ukraine, the Baltic front is momentarily immobilised, which opens the horizon wide to hybrid conflicts that challenges without moving the limits. Although increasingly publicized, the Baltic area has become the theater of slight dislocations, latent conflicts, muffled intimidation, in short, insidious geopolitics. What force these minor disturbances, the product of slight tensions, have is only in their accumulation. It is this accretion that structures and renders dangerous the dispersed, halting events of low intensity. The multiplication of fractures has accentuated territorial vulnerabilities at all levels, threatening and even altering the inter-territoriality so often associated with the Baltic area.
