Summary/Abstract: Cooperation between Poland and Norway in security matters is developing dynamically. At the political level both countries have been pursuing a common goal to strengthen the capacity of the North Atlantic Alliance to defend member states’ territories. At the same time, the potential for closer Polish-Norwegian cooperation remains largely unexploited, as both countries could benefit from exchanging experiences from their engagement in regional defence cooperation vehicles, the NORDEFCO and Visegrad Group, as well as from their participation in security sector reform within the ISAF operation in Afghanistan. Also recommended is a closer look at their security policies in search of the most effective political and military responses to threats posed by Russia.
