Croatia and NATO  [PDF]

Abstract: The purpose of this article is to study the relations between the Republic of Croatia and NATO. The paper analyses the process of Croatia’s approaching to NATO. By adopting the new strategic concept of NATO at the 1999 Washington summit and conclusions at the 2002 Prague summit the Alliance has confirmed its willingness to enlarge itself through the Partnership for Peace programme. This programme has established itself as a bridge for inclusion of NATO non-member countries into its activities by achieving their interoperability with the Alliance. By all this, the Partnership for Peace has become one of the tools for encouraging defence and security co-operation among European countries, regardless of the fact whether they are NATO members or not. Such a position of NATO in the European security architecture and its enlargement by admitting new member states is of special significance for the Croatian activities taken and directed towards this organisation. Through its activities within the Partnership for Peace Croatia makes preparations to achieve interoperability with NATO. These activities constitute a part of the preparations for its future membership in the Alliance (this also includes the reform of the security and defence system). On the other hand, the co-operation with NATO (together with other mechanisms such as OSCE and the Stability Pact) enables Croatia to exerts its influence towards stabilisation of the situation in this part of South-Eastern Europe, achieving at the same time its key political, economic and security interests in the region.
Comparison of Geopolitical Significance of Post Cold War Rounds of Enlargement of NATO

Abstract: In the Post-Cold War era, NATO enlargements occurred in two rounds. Ten new member states joined NATO. These enlargements represent a major asset to the building of new security architecture of the Post-Cold War Europe, after the dissolution of Warsaw Treaty and the USSR. Two rounds of NATO enlargement were very differentby their territorial reach, regional determination, current circumstances inside the Alliance and the influence on geopolitical relations in Europe and the US-Russia geostrategicrelations. NATO enlargements were precursory to the EU enlargements on ten post-communist European states. After the September 11, successful implementation of the second round of NATO enlargement became one of the strategic objectives in struggle against terrorism, led by the USA and its allies. The enlargement significantly changed relations within NATO as well as the very geopolitical balance in Europe. The security and stability zone expanded to the East and Southeast of Europe. NATO’s influence has also spread over the border regions of Europe, even transcending those borders. Third round of NATO enlargement was announced at the NATO summit in Bucharest during which Croatia and Albania were invited to join the Alliance. The thirdround of NATO enlargement will probably refer to Macedonia, if it settles a dispute over its name with Greece. Given that NATO is to include the Western Balkans states, its role of a stabilization force will become even more important in this unstable area, particularly under the aspect problem of solutions to the problems connected with the independence of Kosovo and its consequences to the stability of the region. Future strategic challenges to the European security will be tied to the NATO-Russia relations, regarding the NATO’s future ambitions in the Eastern Europe and Caucasus region. If NATO decides to invite Georgia and Ukraine to become its members, we can expectRussian reaction, which could lead to the period of whole scale and long-term instability in a large part of Europe, but also in a part of Eurasia.

Aggression in children
Daneshvar-Ameri,Z
Hayat Journal of Faculty of Nursing & Midwifery , 2003,
Abstract: Links between violence, aggression, and mental illness are well documented. Despite this association, our current understanding of the factors for and optimal treatment of aggression remains limited. This lack of knowledge is alarming because nurses, particularly pediatric nurses who treat aggressive children, are frequent targets of patient aggression. Consequently, the aim of this article is to provide information regarding the concept of aggression in child patients, assessment of violent behavior, implementation of interventional treatment and a review of medical, psychological and social strategies which assist in the understanding of aggression and its clinical intervention. However, the etiology of aggression for the most part still remains a mystery.
NATO enlargement and relations between Serbia and Montenegro and Bulgaria and Romania  [PDF]

Medjunarodni Problemi , 2003, DOI: 10.2298/medjp0302223f
Abstract: The discussion of bilateral relations in modern international relations is usually in the shadow of the new character of global international politics, which is mediated through the large international relations. Bilateral diplomacy is slowly giving way to multilateral diplomacy in the solving of most international issues, including those that have been traditionally perceived as belonging exclusively to the domain of state sovereignty. However, bilateral relations remain crucial in situations where integration processes into large international bodies encounter obstacles and problems. The current development of bilateral diplomacy between Serbia and Montenegro on the one, and Bulgaria and Romania, on the other hand, serves predominantly the purposes of regional harmonisation that will eventually lead to NATO and EU accession, and this process also serves to iron out not so infrequent problems and dissonances in the recent history of bilateral relations, especially between Bulgaria and the former FRY, and particularly during the NATO bombing of FRY in the Spring of 1999. Today, however, all three countries have proclaimed the EU and NATO accession projects as the top priorities of their foreign policies. In the course of pursuit of their accession policies, Bulgaria and Romania have realised that the so-called “beauty contest” approach, namely the countries' insistence on their own qualifications for membership in the EU and NATO, as opposed to the qualifications of the other countries of the region, is largely futile, and they have opted instead for a regional cooperation approach. The latter approach is consistent with the founding principle of regionalism in the internal organisation of the European Union, and this principle includes, among others, the sub-principle of subsidiarity, whereby all decisions are made on the lowest hierarchical level possible, preferably on the level of European regions. This approach implies that countries that are candidates for membership in the EU must first demonstrate the ability to cooperate and integrate regionally, and this is why Romania and Bulgaria, as well as Serbia and Montenegro, have now refocused their efforts on mutual bilateral relations within the context of NATO (and EU) accession.
NATO - ENERGY SECURITY DISCOURSE  [PDF]
Toni Mileski, Associate Professor
Bezbednosni Dijalozi , 2012,
Abstract: This paper presents an attempt to approach and clarify the debate for energy security in the framework of the "evolving" NATO. The contemporary states point to the fact that energy supply is not only an economic topic, but also something that more and more often occupies the work agendas of the other institutions on the international scene as well. More precisely, this paper discusses the attempt for politicization and securitization of the energy supply, the involvement and role of NATO in the field of energy security, as well as the complexity in defining such a role of the Alliance. The chronology of the beginnings of the inclusion of NATO in the area of energy security as elaborated in the strategic documents of the Alliance is represented. The paper views the arguments that contribute to the need for more serious involvement of NATO. In addition, the elements that can present a problem for the clear definition of the place and role of NATO in the field of energy security are also analyzed. The energy security discourse presents a serious pointer for the possible directions of the evolving of the Alliance and its future engagement in contemporary international relations.

Ethics and morality  [PDF]
Babi? Jovan
Theoria, Beograd , 2008, DOI: 10.2298/theo0802035b
Abstract: The article is an encyclopedia item prepared for an Encyclopedia of Democracy, forthcoming in Slu beni Glasnik, Belgrade, in collaboration with the School for Political Sciences at Belgrade University. The main goal in the article is to develop a definition of the morality as the subject of study for ethics, a part of philosophy dealing with the nature and the scope of possible application of morality as a specific evaluational criterion. Some basic features of this specificity have been explored, and a list of ethical theories have been briefly analyzed, two of them in some more details. A squelch of a possible connection between ethics and democracy has been given at the very end of the article.
