WHAT IS NATO AND WHERE IS IT GOING?   

The North Atlantic Treaty organization has been a successful instrument for keeping peace for seventy-five years. It relies on the concept of collective defense - an arrangement whereby states commit support in defense of member states if attacked by a state outside the organization. It has evolved from its early origins into a broader instrument of international policy. Expansion in recent years has created new issues and NATO’s growth has not been without controversy. Indeed, when Ukraine showed cautious interest in joining NATO, Russia used this as justification for its invasion. The 9/11 attacks and war in Ukraine have highlighted the issue of collective defense but also divisions within the alliance. At the same time, we have seen significant stresses among the partners because of factors not related to defense. This course will focus on the strengths and weaknesses of NATO, its current incarnation, and potential future developments.
