Dear readers,


This is the first special issue that the Croatian International Relations

Review (CIRR) publishes, conveniently falling into the 20th year of the

journal’s existence. A decision to publish a special issue was motivated

by a desire to mark another anniversary – that of the Croatian 5th year

of membership in NATO.


Croatia and Albania joined NATO in 2009 and remain the only two

countries – members of NATO – in the region five years after. With

the exception of Serbia, all other countries in the region, more or less,

express the desire to join NATO. The accession process, however, just

as in the case of the accession to the European Union, is wrought

with obstacles, both internally and externally. At the same time, NATO

faces numerous challenges, in Europe and beyond. These and related

themes are discussed in this issue.


A word about CIRR – we make significant efforts to strengthen the

journal – attract excellent scholarly articles and widen the journal’s

reading audience. To this end, a number of changes have been

introduced during the last two years. CIRR has an open-access

policy and full texts can be downloaded through the CIRR website ,

HRČAK – a portal of academic journals in Croatia or through the

De Gruyter website, the journal’s academic distributor.


As of recently, full and free access to all previous issues of

the journal is available at the CIRR and HRČAK websites.

CIRR is a member of COPE – Committee on Publication Ethics – and has

a strict anti-plagiarism policy.


We would like to thank NATO Public Diplomacy Division for financially

supporting the publication of the special issue and NATO Assistant

Secretary General for Public Diplomacy, Ambassador Kolinda Grabar-

Kitarović, for endorsing the idea of the special issue and writing the
