The findings presented in this report suggest that although action of a functional type has the potential for delivering a strong and healthy narrative and for reinforcing a positive self-perception, it also holds a considerable risk of leading to a weak and fragmented narrative, which ultimately can establish itself as a persistent ‘crisis narrative’ and have severely detrimental effects on ontological security and internal cohesion. The task for NATO following its adoption of the new Strategic Concept will therefore be to seize the moment for changing the currently negative dynamics flowing from the present practical action in Afghanistan.
