States, International Organizations and Strategic Partnerships

Edited by Lucyna Czechowska, Andriy Tyushka, Agata Domachowska, Karolina Gawron-Tabor and Joanna Piechowiak-Lamparska

In post-Cold War international relations, strategic partnerships are an emerging and distinct analytical and political category critical in understanding the dynamics of contemporary strategic cooperation between states and International Organizations. However, the idea of strategic partnerships has remained under-theorized and overshadowed by the alliance theory. Addressing this clear-cut gap in the International Relations/Foreign Policy Analysis literature, this book originally endeavors to theorize and empirically test the analytical model of strategic partnerships as a new form of sustainable international cooperation in times of globalized interdependence and turbulence.

Chapter 6: An evolving NATO–Ukraine strategic partnership in a turbulent security environment

Andriy Tyushka


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.
