Description - NATO's Balkan Interventions by Dana H. Allin

The terrorist mass murders of 11 September 2001 transformed transatlantic priorities, drawing a line under a decade in which the wars of Yugoslavia's collapse dominated the transatlantic security relationship. Yet, despite progress in the region, Balkan instability retains the capacity to punish Western inattention, much as it did in the early 1990s. This Adelphi Paper examines NATO's Balkan interventions over the entire decade starting with the break-up of Yugoslavia in 1992. Focusing on the wars in Bosnia and Kosovo, it traces the record of early transatlantic failures and later successes as once bitterly divided allies were able, finally, to unite around some basic principles. By the time of the Kosovo intervention in spring 1999, the allies agreed on the necessity of taking sides and using military force in conflicts that were complicated, but far from morally opaque. The paper concludes with some lessons around which the transatlantic allies might reasonably hope - despite other pressing concerns - to stay engaged and stay united.
