Chapter 6: An evolving NATO–Ukraine strategic partnership in a turbulent security environment
Distinctive and ever closer, as it was proclaimed to become some two decades ago, the NATO–Ukrainian strategic partnership has undergone several rounds of transformation while successfully maintaining its rationale, that is, promoting security, enhancing defence and safeguarding regional stability. This chapter seeks to explore and explain in detail to what extent NATO–Ukrainian strategic goals and strategic roles convergence, trust, unique bonds, routinized diplomatic practices as well as advanced cooperation structures are responsible for the partnership’s success. Testing the book’s underlying five hypotheses, the case study on NATO–Ukrainian strategic partnership reveals the instances of past and determinants of future strategic cooperation willingness, just as it traces the prerequisites of its sustainability – both in the past and for the decades to come.
