Report of the Group of Experts.22-11-2010
It is important to read the report together with the official text of the new Strategic Concept. The general nature of the Concept hides an number of unsolved disagreements in the alliance The first example is the continuing tension between the American and European concept of NATO as a regional or global security organisation. As is written in the report: "For all its assets, NATO is by no nmeans the sole answer to every problem affecting international security. NATO is a regional, not a global organisation; its authority and resources are limited and it has no desire to take on missions that other institutions and countries can handle succesfully.. Accordingly, the new Strategic Concept should prescribe guidelines for NATO as it makes decisions about when and where to apply its resources outside Alliance borders."
