Abstract:

This monograph examines the NATO Alliance and its transition from a 1949 defense security guarantee, between 16 independent nations into a collective security arrangement. The 1991 NATO Summit formalized this shift from an adversarial relationship between east and west, to one of engagement through Partnership for Peace PfP a NATO alliance initiative designed to enhance stability throughout Europe. The focus of this monograph is on the Partnership for Peace initiative that was designed to engage the allies and client states of the former Soviet Union. NATO in 1991 found its Cold War strategic objectives out of balance with the realities of a new European environment. The aim of PfP is to establish a bond between the NATO members and the nations of Eastern and Central Europe, the Balkans, and the Caucasus. It is a political and military consultative process that is based on the framework of the objectives the Euro-Atlantic Partnership Council laid out. These objectives frame the PIP initiative. These are designed to enhance democratic principles, reinforce the military subordination to civilian control, and support human rights in the former Soviet satellite nations.
