La démarche stratégique des États baltes dans l'architecture européenne de sécurité et de défense : une politique fondée sur une dialectique identitaire et militaire : de la restauration de leur indépendance aux commémorations russes du soixantième anniversaire de la victoire contre l'Allemagne nazie

Abstract : Baltic States' ambition, as soon as they got their independance, was to seek a full integration within the European architecture and security and defence (Mainly the EU and NATO) in order to escape to the warlike temptations of a Russia very hostile to their Atlantic diplomacy. Their common denominator is less to share a similar identity around a so-called "Baltic" label than having a constraining geo-strategic location and having used an identity opportunely constructed in order to avoid this constraint. As a matter of fact, because they became aware of their insignificant chances to join NATO if they were to put forward only military arguments, they developed successfully a rhetoric shaped around a reasoning linked to their western identity, conceiling their primar strategy. Thanks to the identity might, the Baltic States have been able to by-pass their deficit of power and joined the EU and NATO without for as much it causes the so feared casus belli from Russia.
