Latvian Foreign and Security Policy Yearbook 2016 / Ed. by Andris Sprūds, Ilvija Bruģe. – Riga: Latvian Institute of International Affairs, Friedrich Ebert Stiftung, 2016. – 148 p.

The Latvian Institute of International Affairs (LIIA) continues to provide an annual assessment of Latvian foreign and security policy. The Latvian Foreign and Security Policy Yearbook 2016 aims to contribute to the understanding of Latvia’s foreign and security policy decisions and considerations, along with opportunities and concerns for 2016. During the 2015 Latvia assumed a six month presidency of the Council of the European Union, moving Latvia into the centre of European events. However, 2015 has been a very challenging year for the European Union, Transatlantic community and the world security in general, and Latvia in particular. The ongoing crises in the world will continue to pose threats to stability in the region and the world, therefore, it is crucial that Latvia makes the best possible foreign and security policy decisions in 2016.

This publication is an effort of the Latvian Institute of International Affairs with support by Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung.
