L’alleanza rinverdita. La Nato e le origini dell’"ambientalismo dall’alto"

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The article deals with the environmental proposals that NATO set forward from the end of the Sixties. These proposals led to the creation of a Committee on the Challenges of Modern Society, new provisions for improving environmental monitoring, and the introduction of new antipollution laws. The author argues that NATO’s environmentalism should be understood mainly as an attempt to address tensions within the alliance and counter initiatives "from below" by environmentalist nongov ernmental organizations.

Keywords: NATO; Environmentalism; Development; Cold War; International Relations; Science and Technology.
