Summary/Abstract: Analyzing the evolution of the North Atlantic Alliance’s Strategic Concepts and highlighting the effects they have had on the international relations and on the security system allow the understanding of both the doctrinal approach that supported these concepts and the objective determination of their level of success, in terms of efficiency, and effectiveness. Such understanding ensures the identification of the possible historic repetition, namely the specific security context, and substantiates the relationship between the past experience and the current and the perspective actionable potential. The successful solution in overcoming state security risks through alliances lies not only in the cumulative effect of defense resources contributed by the Member States but also in the capacity to integrate defense planning and operational planning, when the consistent provision of the necessary resources is ensured.
