NATO will most probably withdraw from Afghanistan by 2014. Since the end of the Cold War and the collapse of the Soviet Union NATO has, to a large extent, found a new raison d'etre in out of area operations. Since there is clearly no appetite for another Afghanistan-like operation the question arises, what will be the fate of the North Atlantic Alliance after 2014? Divisions inside the Alliance on what NATO is for do exist, but they do not render NATO ineffective or rudderless. The Russia-Georgia war strengthened the hand of those allies for whom NATO is primarily about collective defence. This paper looks at the drafting process of the new Strategic Concept and argues that it managed to overcome differences among the allies and unite NATO under one concept. NATO will survive the drawdown from Afghanistan in 2014 because the United States needs allies, Europe needs the United States in order to facilitate its ability to project power, NATO provides for interoperability between members' armed forces, NATO is tied together not just by threats and endeavours but also by values and principles and because the Russian Federation's behaviour towards bordering NATO countries is problematic
