Abstract:This paper deals with the changes in the difficulty of accession to NATO and will attempt to explain these through the level of security stability on the international level. In this comparative case study, qualitative data from the accession of the states that joined since 1952 will be compared and analysed with respect to the change in the level of security stability on the international level. This allowed to draw conclusions on which enlargement strategy is followed when the level of security changes. The strategy most likely aligns itself with the predictions of realism, liberalism, constructivism or a mix of those. Accession processes of states who have successfully joined NATO, as well as criteria used for the assessment of applicants will be the fundamental basis for the research.
