Abstract : This report is the first in a series of hearings on NATO enlargement. These hearings are especially timely, not only because the United States and other NATO members are approaching a decision point on the next step in the expansion process, but also because a broader discussion and debate on the larger issues surrounding the question of NATO expansion is very much overdue. The purpose of this discussion is to assess how well or how poorly expanding NATO membership into East Central Europe (ECE) serves American interests in Europe and European security. It is regretted that a national discussion and debate such as the one you are now initiating did not precede the Administration's decision at the end of last year to accelerate the expansion process.
