Military Transformation in NATO: A Framework for Analysis

Chapter


Abstract


  • Across the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), member states are

    undergoing military transformation. For new member states from the former

    Eastern bloc, there has been transformation with the introduction of democratically

    controlled military organizations.1 Some existing member states have

    also been transforming their militaries to phase out conscription and move

    toward all-volunteer professional forces.2 On top of these de facto transformations

    in military professionalism across Europe, NATO undertook a commitment

    at the 2002 Prague Summit, to transform its capabilities for, and approach

    to, military operations, and to lead that effort a specific NATO command was

    created, Allied Command Transformation (ACT).
