Inclusion, Exclusion and the Governance of European Security

Mark Webber

Manchester University Press

This chapter assesses the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation's (NATO) relevance in terms of how it has contributed to a dynamic of inclusion and, in parallel, of exclusion in European security. It also highlights two fundamental developments which flowed from NATO's strategic response to the end of the Cold War and which have been reinforced by the impact of the 9/11 terrorist attacks in the United States. These are, first, an extension of geopolitical remit, and second, a widening of purpose. The first of these informed debates on NATO's persistence in the immediate aftermath of the Cold War and has been carried forward through processes of liaison, partnership and enlargement. The second has informed the manner in which NATO has acted as a vehicle of security provision and, related to this, the implicit, and sometimes explicit, message it has projected as to where the threats to security reside. This chapter also analyses NATO's role in security governance and security community in Europe, along with region, institutionalisation and compliance.
