North Atlantic Treaty Organisation
- Question of the enlargement of NATO
Question of the enlargement of NATOAfter its foundation in 1949 with twelve founding members, NATO expanded with Greece and Turkey in 1952, West Germany in 1955, and Spain in 1982. Following the conclusion of the Cold War and the reunification of Germany in 1990, it was debated whether NATO should continue to expand eastward. Since then, NATO has gathered fourteen new members in five different enlargements, latest being North Macedonia in the eighth enlargement in 2020. Our delegates will debate upon the further enlargement agenda of NATO.
TunisiaSince the Arab Spring, Tunisia has become one of the most stable countries in the Middle East and North Africa. With the increasing democratic index in the leadership of a so-called Islamic democratic government, Tunisia became a role model of a conservative democracy to other countries with Muslim majority until 2021, when the President Kais Saied suspended the parliament and democratic organs. Our delegates will debate upon NATO’s stand and actions through the situation in Tunisia, which has also been a partner of NATO in North Africa since the democratic transition.
