Outside View: Steps toward an EU-NATO link

Outside View: Steps toward an EU-NATO Link

Daniel Korski, a senior fellow at the European Council on Foreign Relations believes we should seize the opportunity to merge the EU and NATO.

Although NATO and the EU are being regarded as two differing entities this article is publicly moving them towards two sides of the same coin.

Although there was a period of strong cooperation between Lord Robertson at NATO and Javier Solana, the EU's foreign policy czar, the two have drifted apart.

Now a call to unite in two areas are being put on the table.

First, a joint NATO/EU Center for Security and Justice Sector Reform.

Second, a NATO/EU School for Conflict, Post-Conflict and Stabilization.

Who would be in charge of the new collaboration?

To overcome political obstacles one person could rotate as head of both.

A New Alignment Gathers Momentum
