Abstract
  • The end of Cold War-era bipolarity and the rise of global multipolarity have been particularly consequential for the transatlantic security regime. This regime has seen the North Atlantic Treaty Organization's expansion into out-of-area operations and the emergence of the European Union as a security actor in its own right. Yet consistent formal cooperation between those two actors has proven difficult, and the United States of America has increasingly sought to achieve its security objectives through alternative multinational fora--seemingly reconsidering the mantle of its historical hegemony within the regime. By exploring recent interactions between these three actors at the political level and through the lens of their overlapping counter-piracy operations in the Horn of Africa region, this thesis seeks to establish whether such concurrent missions indicate increased security competition between historical allies, or rather, the advent of more flexible modalities in transatlantic security cooperation.
