Abstract:

The end of the cold war and dissolution of the bipolar atmosphere present an organizational and security challenge for the New World Order. Countries and security organizations are focusing on political, economic and social issues as well as military forces which they need to support diplomacy. The differences and perceptions between the haves and have nots are destined to grow and increase the challenges to European security. The significant impact of economic issues is evident in several currently developing scenarios as well as the obvious example in the Gulf war. The European Community has significant economic challenges from monetary union, political union, monetary and trade policies, aid to Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union, inflation, recession, interest rates and many others. With the threat and the size of military forces rapidly diminishing, economic issues and their influence on the political and social and cultural realms of society will rise significantly in relative importance. This study focuses on the potential of the most significant economic factors to influence future European security structures and policies.
