NATO Enlargement, 2000-2015: Determinants and Implications for Defense Planning and Shaping

By Thomas S. Szayna | Go to book overview

Chapter Two
THE PLANNING CONTEXT

NATO's transformation to an organization whose mission places greater emphasis on collective and cooperative security has important implications for its enlargement process. These implications are the subject of this chapter. Central to this discussion are the issues inherent to NATO's enlargement strategy, issues that will likely come to the fore as NATO makes its next enlargement decision. From the perspective of the United States and its allies, perhaps the most significant question is how further NATO enlargement could affect NATO's ability to provide for the collective defense in the context of gray-area commitments to non-NATO countries. Included in this chapter is an examination of the various levels of NATO commitments and a discussion of their potential military implications.


CONTEMPORARY EUROPEAN SECURITY ENVIRONMENT

NATO's current strategy for enlargement is both the result of and a contributor to the benign security environment that currently prevails in Europe. This environment is characterized by the absence (or extremely low incidence) of armed conflict and the lack of any near-term potential for a major war. From the standpoint of U.S. interest in peaceful and democratic development in Europe, the current European security environment, when compared with the situation in the 1980s or early 1990s, represents a remarkably positive turn of events.
