Abstract

With the end of the Cold War, NATO has been called on to reconsider the reasons that led it to effectively counter the Treaty of Warsaw. From the Balkans to its missions in Afghanistan, the Atlantic Alliance is now in search of a new identity and repositioning within international scenarios that have changed considerably. Central Asia and the Middle East are examples of this. These are areas where it is increasingly important to support countries that have become unstable as they have lost their Soviet reference or are suffering setbacks due to religious fundamentalism, and where military collaboration was decisive as opposed to that “defensive coalition” which instead inspired the birth of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization.
