Should NATO continue in its present form? NATO is an organisation that promotes multilateral defence. The defence measures must be approved by its members.

However the events of 9/11 led to a split. An article on the divide was published last year in the 'NATO Review'.

"The 11 September and 11 March attacks left all EU and NATO members more keen to act against new threats but not necessarily in agreement on when to use military force, against whom and under what conditions. There is a general consensus that early and "robust" use of force may occasionally be needed, but it sits awkwardly alongside a deep-seated preference for a society governed by international law in which the use of force is rendered unnecessary by the discipline imposed by multilateral institutions."
