Has Lithuanian Foreign Policy Become Personalised?

Transatlantic integration has become one of the geopolitical hallmarks in the eastern part of northern Europe. The twin enlargement of the EU and NATO in 2004 opened new opportunities for Lithuanian foreign policy making which had until then been based on two pillars – the country’s Euro-Atlantic integration and constructive relations with its neighbours. Arguably, membership has not solved all of Lithuania’s security – let alone economic – problems, especially in the light of the current financial crisis.
