    Decisions about the European Union (EU) and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) come together. Neither institution can ignore what the other does as each proceeds with both the reform of its structures and the enlargement of its membership. The synchronization of NATO and EU enlargement will occur only in the out years. After NATO has grown to nineteen members, it will be best for NATO to seek its new members out of the EU states that are not yet in NATO. As this next wave of NATO enlargement unfolds, the slow pace of EU enlargement will help justify the postponement of a further eastern enlargement of NATO after January 2003, the earliest date for EU enlargement from fifteen to 18-21. Such progressive overlap of NATO and EU membership will also help complete a much-needed reform of NATO, including a more significant contribution to the common defense by a Western European Union that would achieve its "progressive but full" integration in the EU.
