The publication is a record of the impressive discussion between Ján Čarnogurský and Peter Osuský that took place at the Conservative Institute in Bratislava on November 26, 2003. The discussion was chaired by Tomáš Zálešák, a co-worker of the Conservative Institute.
In the publication we may find an answer to the question whether there is any alternative to a NATO membership for Slovakia. The debators offered answers at the time when the process of our accession to NATO was irreversible, but the question of Trans-Atlantic co-operation, issues of our national security and questions regarding relations between Europe and America do not lose their importance after our accession to the Alliance.
Different views of Ján Čarnogurský and Peter Osuský on the title question presented in the publication make readers to look for answers together with them.
The publication was issued within the project To NATO with Our Head Up and Eyes Open with support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
