Standing at the Crossroads: NATO in the Twenty First Century

Abstract

The end of the Cold War, the disintegration of the Warsaw Pact, and NATO’s recent decision to expand, has brought new challenges to the organization. As NATO cannot remain stagnant without losing its will to act, the best policy is to include Russia as a member. Including Russia would alleviate Russia’s view ofthe West as a potential aggressor, give NATO legitimacy in the volatile Balkans and display America’s commitment to Russia’s efforts to adopt democracy and capitalism. NATO expansion should include all majorEuropean players, of which Russia is one.
