Small states - Big worries. Choice and purpose in the security policies of the Baltic States

Release date: 2002-01

BICC brief 21 “Small States—Big Worries. Choice and Purpose in the Security Policies of the Baltic States” looks into factors that have determined the Baltic security policy since independence in 1991.
The development of security concepts and the buildup of armies in the Baltic can be divided into two phases: a first phase of nation- and state-building, and a second phase with the convergence with NATO or individual NATO states being in the main focus.
