What a Difference a Year Makes - Comparative reading and analysis of the April 2018 and August 2019 draft versions of the National Security and Defense Strategies

In the new Report, What a Difference a Year Makes, the Center for Euro-Atlantic Studies from Belgrade (CEAS) presents a comparative analysis of the draft versions of the new National Security Strategy (NSS) and National Defense Strategy (NDS), which the government of the Republic of Serbia approved on 8th August 2019 and passed on to the National Assembly for consideration, in versions that had undergone public discussion back in the spring of 2018. Bearing in mind all the significant changes of circumstances on global, regional and local level that have happened since spring 2018 on one hand, and some significant nuances in the  new versions of Serbian strategic documents endorsed in late summer 2019 on the other, CEAS calls this report – What a Difference a Day Makes - a tribute to its songwriters in Spanish and English, and especially to Dinah Washington and her legendary album What a diff”rence a day makes!

NATO’s Enduring Relevance

In the years since the Cold War, it is hard to recall a time when there was as much hand-wringing and dire prognosticating about NATO’s impending demise as has followed the swearing in of U.S. President Donald Trump. There is hardly a story on NATO that does not proclaim that Americans and Europeans are about to go their separate ways, and barely a speech by a U.S. or European official that does not trigger editorials opining that the alliance is on its last legs, that the allies no longer see eye to eye, and that the United States is about to pack up and leave Europe.
