The Process of Euro-Atlantic Integration of Bulgaria in the 1990–2000s

Abstract

The article examines the progress of the NATO’s«open-door» policy’s realization towards Bulgaria in the 1990-2000s taking into account the changes in the country in the socio-economic and military-political sphere, which were aimed at the integration into Euro-Atlantic structures. An analysis of the reasons that have forced NATO to begin reformatting of the Eastern Balkans and inclusion this subregion in its sphere of influence is made. Special attention is paid to the consideration of the process of Bulgaria’s Euro-Atlantic integration in the context of the Alliance’s military-political activity in South-Eastern Europe and the Middle East.
