As the 2014 Summit approaches, questions remain about future of NATO’s Open Door Policy, which has taken a backseat to NATO’s operations in Afghanistan and Libya and ongoing defense budget cuts in recent years. Montenegro has been a successful NATO partner ever since joining the Alliance’s Partnership for Peace framework in 2006 after gaining independence from Serbia. Despite having a small military, Montenegro has contributed substantively to the Alliance, most notably in Afghanistan and Operation Ocean Shield. Mr. Krivokapić is coming to Washington, DC to discuss his country’s NATO membership prospects and the broader future of NATO’s enlargement policy.

Ranko Krivokapić has been president of the Parliament of Montenegro since 2003 and president of the Social Democratic Party of Montenegro since 2001. For 10 years, he has been the head of the Montenegrin delegation to the Parliamentary Assembly of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe.
