Institutional Reform

Photo credit: NATO HQ

NATO today is a complex hybrid of a political-military alliance and a multilateral institution that is unrivalled in history. It has begun the transition from a Cold War Alliance focusing exclusively on territorial defence through deterrence into a pan-European instrument for crisis management and peacekeeping. A slimmer and modernised structure was part of the NATO transformation agenda agreed at the 2002 Prague Summit and in June 2003 a new Allied Command Transformation (ACT) was established to promote transformation and interoperability of Alliance militaries. Required institutional reforms may include changes to the way NATO makes decisions, spends money, generates military and civilian capabilities, and matches missions to means. This is a summary list of all the content in the site categorised within the Institutional Reform policy area.
