NATO and Southeastern Europe: Security Issues for the Early 21st Century is a collection of diverse, and sometimes divergent, perspectives on key Euro-Atlantic security issues and the challenges and difficulties within Southeastern Europe. Contributors include senior-level government officials, the broader policy community, and academics from both the United States and Europe. Topics range from such acute problems as the Kosovo crisis and the legality of NATO’s Operation Allied Force to broader institutional questions of how NATO and other Euro-Atlantic institutions should adapt to meet emerging challenges. These though-provoking pieces also reflect on existing and potential regional cooperative initiatives that strive to build strong democratic institutions and to promote development based on market economic principles. A major emphasis is placed on overall regional issues and on strategies, both conventional and alternative, to achieve a greater regional integration of the Eastern Mediterranean into the Euro-Atlantic community.
