Abstract : This paper examines the fundamental changes that have taken place in Europe since 1989, and the effects they have had on the security of the northern area of NATO. The major problem facing Norway in the future is marginalization and isolation, if it does not become a member of the European Community (EC). The paper concludes that the northern area of NATO still is exposed, and until Russia emerges from its current problems in some form of democracy, Norway should keep up a strong national defence with priority to Northern Norway. The paper further concludes that if Norway does not become a full member of the European Community and the Western European Union, it must find some other security arrangement for the future. A bilateral security agreement with the United States could be a solution.
