Abstract

The strategic concept of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) is a tool historically used by the Euro-Atlantic community to create a common vision of deterrence and defense policy that is now also actively used to signal adversaries about the redlines. The twenty-first century has brought new challenges and reinforced old threats. These changes, which were made under a step-by-step process, are reflected in the working documents of the Alliance while building a common understanding of response among member states. Once a consensus was reached, the unclassified strategic concept was published. In 2010, it reflected a favorable strategic environment and hopes for nuclear zero, while in 2022 strategic concept was shaped by deteriorating world order and features a return to collective defense as a priority combined with a much higher focus on the role played by nuclear weapons. Russian unprovoked attack in February 2022 has played a decisive role in this strategy change, reinforced the unity of NATO, and pushed allies to translate strategic decisions into practical steps.
