The accession of Slovakia to NATO is a strategic move which should deeply influence our political and security situation. The term of security is very broad and has several dimensions: military, economic, political, social and ecological.
Majority of activities concerning the accession to NATO focused mainly on political, economic and military security criteria of integration. But the accession of Slovakia to NATO and later to the EU covers also wider civilisation and value issues touching all the spheres of society, although this is not a short-term period matter. It is a long-term process of blending with a functioning society of the most developed states in the world.
The publication is an attempt to open a discussion and mediate opinions regarding this topic that is difficult to analyse from a neutral point of view. Therefore we have given up pointless attempts to be neutral and offer you our opinion as one of the alternatives concerning the issue of civilisation affiliation of Slovakia.
The publication was issued within the project Together to NATO and the EU with the support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The publication is available only in Slovak language here as an Adobe Acrobat PDF.
