NATO’s secretary-general has said next month’s summit in Chicago will result in new initiatives to improve inter-operability among alliance military forces.

But NATO expert and Ohio Wesleyan University professor Sean Kay tells Voice of America reporter Al Pessin that more is needed.

“If NATO just comes to Chicago, pats itself on the back and says ‘We are on plan and we are just doing great,’ they have not made the kind of deep seated changes that need to be made,” said Kay, Ph.D., author of the recently published second edition of “Global Security in the Twenty-First Century: The Quest for Power and the Search for Peace.”

Kay, who also authored 2011’s “Celtic Revival? The Rise, Fall, and Renewal of Global Ireland” is visiting Ireland this week to take part in the Third Annual Economic Ideas Forum. He will participate in an April 20 panel discussion on “The EU and US—shared economic challenges.”
