The Warsaw Summit was held on 8-9 July 2016 with the assumption of “an essential Alliance in a more dangerous world” both in the eastern and in the southern flanks. Bearing in mind that the allies gathered in “a defining moment for the security of our nations and populations”, this contribution aims toanalyse the main decisions of the Warsaw summit towards a ‘new’ NATO 360ºfull spectrum approach based on agility, flexibility and readiness. Moreover, as collective defence, crisis management and cooperative security remain the keycore areas of NATO, this paper will also explore some critical insights to addresseastern flank challenges from the southern perspective. We will conclude that anenhanced cooperation and full engagement between NATO and the EU as agreedin the final communiqué are crucial for security and defence of all borders.
