The capacity of the European Command to contribute to security and stabil- ity in its Mediterranean area of responsibility depends on its ability to de- velop and execute operational concepts and capabilities that are appropriate to the security environment in which it operates.1 In the maritime domain of the Mediterranean, the threats are largely transnational in character and can be effectively dealt with only in cooperation with regional partners.
