World War II had caused an unlikely alliance between the Soviets and the Americans to form to fight for a greater good: A world liberated from the Axis Powers. The alliance had succeeded, and the Allies rose as the victors of the war. However, with the collapse of Europe, the two superpowers found each other competing to exert their influence on the continent. In order to keep the Soviets at bay, the United States, Canada, and several Western European countries came together to form NATO: An alliance that would guarantee military and political security across the North Atlantic. It would seem that the goal of NATO succeeded, since the Soviet Union collapsed in the 90s. However, the alliance must now adapt to the problems of the 21st century: How will NATO deal with Eastern Europe post-USSR? How will NATO deal with cyber-security? Should NATO expand its alliance? Or perhaps NATO’s size has doomed it to crumble?
The NATO Committee is recommended for intermediate delegates.
