A Renewed Partnership for Europe Tackling European Security Challenges by EU-NATO Interaction

Baden-Baden Nomos Verlagsgesellschaft, December 1995, 337 Pages ISBN 3-7890-4129-7 [AMP, Bd. 43]

The end of the Cold War has lifted the "Iron Curtain" that divided Europe for 45 years. However, in its place new challenges have arisen that call on the continent to re-examine its security commitments and its relationship with the United States. In a four part analysis the book delves into the nature and scope of these challenges, and identifies strategies to tackle the conflicts and crises that a new Europe may present.

Part one offers inside views on security scenarios and potential conflicts within the former communist bloc particularly Russia, Ukraine, Hungary and Romania. Part two analyzes the European and transatlantic institutional networks that provide a foundation for a new European security arrangement. This includes chapters on NATO, EU-WEU, the Partnership for Peace and EU-CEEC relations. Part three adds American and Russian perspectives on these institutions. Finally, the conclusion takes up the task of addressing the concepts and conditions for future EU-NATO interaction.
