Summary/Abstract: The aim of this paper is to present an analysis of the new NATO Strategic Concept in comparison to the expectations of the international society with respect to this document. It also provides a formal study of the elements of the strategy itself in order to give an answer to the question whether it meets all requirements of such a document. The research shows that the document lacks the very basic constituents of a strategy, does not introduce many real changes nor confirms the existence of new NATO priorities. Taking our findings into consideration, it seems that the new NATO Strategic Concept should be treated only as a political declaration.
