Security Tasks

collective defense
Collective Defense
  • NATO contributes to preserving the peace, security and territorial integrity of Alliance member states
  • Should aggression occur, or be considered imminent, NATO will take all military measures within its capability and authority to:

1. Maintain the integrity of Allied Territory

2. Safeguard freedom of the seas and economic lifelines

3. Preserve or restore the security of the area of responsibility

article s 5 and 6 collective defense
Article’s 5 and 6Collective Defense
  • “An armed attack against one or more of them in Europe or North America shall be considered an attack against them all..”
  • “An armed attack on one or more is deemed to include an armed attack on the:
  • Territory of any of the parties in Europe or North America
  • On the forces, vessels or aircraft of any of the parties in or over these territories”

consensus decision making
Consensus Decision Making
  • A decision reached by consensus is an agreement reached by common consent, a decision that is accepted by each member country.
  • This means that when a "NATO decision" is announced, it is the expression of the collective will of all the sovereign states that are members of the Alliance
consensus decision making1
Consensus Decision- making
  • There is no voting
  • Consultations take place until a decision that is acceptable to all is reached
  • Sometimes member countries agree to disagree on an issue.
  • This negotiation process is rapid since members consult each other on a regular basis and therefore often know and understand each other's positions in advance.
