    The purpose of this report is to analyze how it is possible to articulate the interests of the WEU, the EU and NATO in their common desire of achieving peace and stability for a safer Europe. It will not describe the fundamental changes that occurred in the continent since the end of the last decade. But it is important to spend a few words on the consequences these significant changes had on the WEU and the conceptual factors that will determine its future role in Europe. Firstly, it will consider the restructuring of the WEU over the last years. Secondly, it will discuss the relations between the WEU and the EU after the 1991 Maastricht Conference. It will then looks at the management of links with NATO. Finally, it will contribute an analysis on required convergence of issues which will be the subject of three main events: the 1996 EU Intergovernmental Conference (IGC), the 1997 Heads of State and Government NATO Summit and the expiration of the Modified Brussels Treaty of the WEU in 1998. It will conclude analyzing the prospects for the WEU at the end of the century and the alternatives for future security arrangements in the Euro-atlantic area.
