After the Berlin Wall collapsed and the Soviet Union disintegrated, an unprecedented opportunity was missed by NATO to build a new rules based international system. NATO should now seek to develop a vision for, and take genuine practical steps towards, a wider and more inclusive network of partners, including the creation of mechanisms for partnership with non-member countries and other relevant international organisations, such as the EU, OSCE, G8, G20 and the UN and its agencies. Effective multilateralism means supporting a range of international treaties, norms and institutions, even when it presents difficulties for short-term national or collective NATO interests. This is a summary list of all the content in the site categorised within the Enlargement and Partnerships policy area.
