Abstract:

Romania has made enough progress in its political reform efforts and treatment of ethnic minorities to warrant consideration for NATO candidacy. Romania, though, still has much unfinished business to accomplish in basic treaties with some neighbors and in economic reform. When economic reform is implemented and necessary accelerated military downsizing occurs, civil-military frictions will test democratic control mechanisms. NATO needs to design a clear plan to keep Romania on the reform path.
