In this essay I survey the security environment of Eastern Europe since the end of the Cold War and consider how the process of globalization affects the security situation in the region and whether there are prospects for the establishment of a pan-European security order. Other important related themes include the nature of new security challenges, the interplay of internal and external actors affecting European security at the substate, state, regional, and global levels, and the special roles of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and the European Union in integrating the region with the West in the political, economic, and security spheres, as well as the limits of such integrative efforts.
