Security Policy of a Small Central-European Candidate for the Enlarged EU: Slovenia
Slovenia’s security dilemmas in the late 1990s in a number of ways illustrate the predicament and inclinations of the Central-Eastern European (CEE) states in transition. The burden of economic dislocations, social instability, and political unrest today represents a much more potent problem for the region than perceivable military dangers from any direction. This situation region-wide also has numerous implications for Slovenia. However, the solution offered recently by the West in the form of NATO enlargement does not necessarily tally with this realization.
