European defense and the future of transatlantic cooperation by Scott Allen Harris ( Book )
4 editions published in 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
With the fall of the Berlin Wall and the unification of Germany, the demise of the Warsaw Treaty Organization, and, ultimately, the collapse of the Soviet Union, the United States and its allies in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) are facing a new security environment, requiring new structures and institutions, and a new definition of roles and responsibilities for mutual security. NATO has taken a number of steps in this direction, including reorganizing its military command structure, reducing the size of its standing military forces, and changing the way NATO forces are organized and deployed, with new emphasis on multinational formations and mobility. The United States and other NATO allies are reducing their forces. Simultaneous with the rapidly changing security environment, the twelve members of the European Community (EC) moved to closer integration with the Maastricht Treaty on European Union in December 1991, which, inter alia, commits the European Community to develop a common foreign and security policy (CFSP), which will lead to a common defense policy and could result in a common European defense. The need to restructure European security organizations and EC moves to strengthen economic and political unity have led to efforts to create a European identity in security and defense
"An ever closer union" : European integration and its implications for the future of U.S.--European relations by James Steinberg ( Book )
6 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This report examines the process of European integration and assesses its implications for U.S. policy. The study finds that changes in the European Community (EC) will be evolutionary, with the economic and financial dimension moving more quickly and the foreign policy and defense dimension moving more slowly. It also concludes that U.S. influence over European policy will diminish as Europeans become more preoccupied with developing intra-EC consensus, that conflicts in the economic realm will continue and could worsen if the United States and the EC move away from an open trading and financial system to a bloc economic approach, and that NATO will play a diminished role in transatlantic policy consultation and coordination, but will remain an important element of the European security structure. The document recommends that the United States adopt a policy of supporting the general thrust of the integrative process, develop more extensive bilateral working relationships with EC institutions on both economic and security policy, support NATO reform to enhance the complementarity of the EC and NATO, and advocate broadening the EC to include Central European and East European countries
The transformation of the European defense industry : emerging trends and prospects for future U.S.--European competition and collaboration by James Steinberg ( Book )
2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Over the past five years, the European defense industry has undergone a dramatic restructuring. Economic forces and government policies have led to substantial industrial consolidation and the development of extensive transnational ties. Although there have been a number of efforts to promote transatlantic collaboration, most of the consolidation has taken place within and among European defense firms. Despite some efforts by national governments and such organizations as the Independent European Program Group and NATO to promote competition, there is a distinct trend toward national and transnational monopolies. Shrinking defense budgets have accentuated concerns about preserving defense industrial base, increasing the pressure for protectionism. Achieving the economic and political benefits of transatlantic collaboration and a competitive market will require more sustained U.S. and European government efforts to promote open access, eliminate trade barriers, and encourage industry-initiated transatlantic teaming
Civil-military relations and national security thinking in Czechoslovakia : a conference report by Thomas S Szayna ( Book )
3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This Report analyzes the discussions between Czechoslovak and U.S. government officials and security experts during a workshop on "Civil-Military Relations and the Development of National Security Policy in the United States and the Czech and Slovak Federal Republic (CSFR)" held in Prague, CSFR, on May 5-7, 1991. The workshop was devoted to the issues of civilian-military relations and national security policy in the new, post-Communist Czechoslovakia. Throughout Eastern Europe, civilian-military relations are undergoing fundamental changes as the new civilian officials assert control over military establishments previously controlled by ruling Communist parties. In the Czechoslovak case, the deep antimilitary outlook prevalent in the society, the ethnic conflict that has the potential to break the state apart, the ambivalence of some of the current top officials toward the military as a component of security policy, and the brevity of the transition from a Communist to a democratic system further complicate the process. The central conclusion from the workshop is that the Czechoslovak military has evolved greatly toward a genuine state institution since the political changes in late 1989. However, Czechoslovak officials look to the United States and other Western nations for help in training personnel, both uniformed military and civilian security experts. Such help ensures the continued successful transformation of the Czechoslovak military. The workshop occurred before the August 1991 coup that marked the end of Communist dictatorship in the former USSR. As a result, the sense of unease about instability and potential spillover of ethnic strife from the Ukraine into Slovakia has probably increased. These developments are bound to motivate Czechoslovak officials to continue to further institutionalize the Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe (CSCE) and to attain security guarantees through membership in Western security organizations
The role of European institutions in security after the Cold War : some lessons from Yugoslavia by James Steinberg ( Book )
4 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The collapse of communism in Eastern Europe and the drawing down of the Cold War have raised the profile of long-suppressed sources of instability in Central and Eastern Europe, renewing interest in the role of European security institutions in addressing non-East-West conflicts. This Note examines the experience of European institutions, the European Community (EC), Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe, Western European Union, and NATO, in the Yugoslavia crisis. It also considers the relationship between these organizations and the United Nations, which began to play a more significant role in the crisis in the autumn of 1991. The author reviews the evolution of the principal elements of Europe's new security architecture, and describes the actions of the various institutions in responding to the Yugoslavia conflict from the declarations of independence by Slovenia and Croatia on June 25, 1991, until January 1, 1992. The author derives five lessons about future European crises: (1) outside military force plays a limited role, (2) economic leverage is important, (3) institutions for collective decisionmaking are valuable and there are limits to consensus, (4) intervention must take place early, and (5) multiple institutions with overlapping responsibilities present both opportunities and risks
Five models for European security : implications for the United States by Nanette C Gantz ( Book )
5 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This Note assesses five alternative security models that could emerge in the next 5-10 years in terms of how well they meet the U.S. objective of transnational stability in Europe. The Note finds that of the five models proposed, the overlapping security institutions model does best, because it preserves a political and military role for the United States, creates alternative links for U.S. involvement in Europe beyond NATO, demonstrates U.S. willingness to adapt to a stronger European role in security arrangements, and maintains flexibility to move to a number of different security models. The Note recommends that the United States develop a credible rationale for maintaining an integrated military command like NATO, encourage the expansion of the Western European Union's role as a bridge between NATO and the European Community, support the process of European economic and political integration, and encourage the use of the Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe as a pan-European forum for addressing the security concerns of the newly emerging democracies in the East
The evolution of the European economy : implications for transatlantic relations by Charles A Cooper ( Book )
1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Ever since the creation of NATO and the launching of the Marshall Plan after World War II, the United States has been the dominant voice in the transatlantic community. Recently, however, both the security and economic dimensions of U.S. leadership have begun to erode. This erosion, coupled with a more integrated and stronger European economy, has led to a realignment of the transatlantic relationship. The prospects for U.S. growth in the next decade are uncertain, while the outlook on the other side of the Atlantic is for a relatively more prosperous Europe with several more countries at or near U.S. levels of per capita income. Economic disparities within Europe will decrease, and political and economic integration both within the European Community (EC) and between EC and non-EC countries in Europe will increase substantially. Europe will play a more assertive role in economic issues. Unilateral U.S. leadership in international economic and financial matters cannot be sustained, and continued U.S. leadership in the liberalization of global trade is unlikely. The political and economic changes in Europe will also force a change in the U.S.-European security relationship. The integration of the European defense industry will also affect transatlantic relations. The authors suggest that U.S. acceptance of a more balanced partnership with Europe, in return for Europe's willingness to overcome parochial preoccupations in economic affairs, would lay the basis for a new partnership in the transatlantic community
Political and economic issues within the alliance : the future of burdensharing and the southern region by James Steinberg ( Book )
3 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Burdensharing has always been a contentious issue within NATO. As background to an understanding of possible burdensharing problems in NATO's fifth decade, this report briefly reviews some of the traditional sources of burdensharing disputes within the Alliance. It then examines how recent developments in East-West and West-West relations are likely to transform the burdensharing debate in the future. The authors assess ways the general trends that are now emerging might affect Alliance relations. Finally, they examine the influence of those forces on NATO's southern region
Overlapping institutions, underinsured security : the evolution of the post-Cold War security order by James Steinberg ( Book )
4 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
With the end of the Cold War, the bipolar European political and security institutions which underpinned it have struggled to adapt to new security challenges. The process has been shaped by four key factors: the U.S. desire to maintain a significant role for NATO; the impact of German unification; the need for an enhanced pan-European organization to reflect the end of Europe's east-west division; and the emergence of new sources of conflict, especially ethnic and national conflict. This evolution has followed four principal lines: adaptation of NATO, movement toward deepening and enlarging the European Community (EC), institutionalization of the Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe (CSCE) and growing international willingness to intervene in nations' internal affairs. Nonetheless, these changes have been inadequate to address effectively Europe's emerging sources of instability. Policy makers need guidelines for further adaptation. The paper proposes nine policy recommendations for developing the roles and responsibilities of the United Nations, CSCE, NATO, the EC and the WEU, as well as an enhanced institutional link between the EC and the United States, in order to enhance European stability in the future

Strategic reassurance and resolve : U.S - China relations in the twenty-first century by James Steinberg ( Book )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"After forty years of largely cooperative Sino-U.S. relations, policymakers, politicians, and pundits on both sides of the Pacific see growing tensions between the United States and China. Some go so far as to predict a future of conflict, driven by the inevitable rivalry between an established and a rising power, and urge their leaders to prepare now for a future showdown. Others argue that the deep economic interdependence between the two countries and the many areas of shared interests will lead to more collaborative relations in the coming decades.In this book, James Steinberg and Michael O'Hanlon stake out a third, less deterministic position. They argue that there are powerful domestic and international factors, especially in the military and security realms, that could well push the bilateral relationship toward an arms race and confrontation, even though both sides will be far worse off if such a future comes to pass. They contend that this pessimistic scenario can be confidently avoided only if China and the United States adopt deliberate policies designed to address the security dilemma that besets the relationship between a rising and an established power. The authors propose a set of policy proposals to achieve a sustainable, relatively cooperative relationship between the two nations, based on the concept of providing mutual strategic reassurance in such key areas as nuclear weapons and missile defense, space and cyber operations, and military basing and deployments, while also demonstrating strategic resolve to protect vital national interests, including, in the case of the United States, its commitments to regional allies"--

Rethinking security arrangements in Europe by Rand Corporation ( )
1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This Note analyzes the implications for Western security policy of the momentous changes taking place in Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union. It discusses the ongoing changes in Eastern Europe, the Soviet Union, and the European Community, and why they are making the existing security regime obsolete and inadequate. It then describes a suggested new security architecture designed to facilitate the removal of all Soviet forces from Eastern Europe and the reduction of NATO forces to well below present levels, to encourage the evolution of NATO into a primarily political association, to remove security-related external barriers to the unification of Germany, and to encourage the development of independent, democratic governments in Eastern Europe. It addresses the implications of the asymmetrical geo-strategic positions in Europe for the United States and the Soviet Union, and suggests why the new architecture is better designed than present arrangements to handle a possible policy reversal in the Soviet Union
