    The proposition set forth in this paper is that WEU, rather than in danger of being marginalized due to internal contradictions and lack of coherence, is seen by the major European members as an organization which is, again, becoming part of the established European security architecture precisely because it serves numerous, and sometimes very different, national and regional purposes. Moreover, WEU, while continuing to grow in structure and substance, is likely to remain more closely tied to the Atlantic Alliance than to the European Union for now, although that nexus, too, will develop as post Cold War security is redefined away from poles and pillars to cooperation and integration.
