The dramatic events that occurred in Europe since 1989 have altered the course of European security. The revolutions in eastern Europe, the disapearance of the Warsaw Pact, the collapse of the Soviet Union, German unification and civil war in Yugoslavia have presented NATO and the West European Union with new challenges. This study identifies the changing patterns of security in Europe by examining the major themes, the primary security organizations and the policies of countries at the forefront of the security debate.
