This paper examines NATO’s engagement during the bombing of the Federal Republic Yugoslavia and its impact on further development of crisis management defined by the Strategic Concept and other relevant documents. The authors have tried to provide the answers to the questions regarding the NATO’s procedures, effectiveness and efficiency during the operation MERCIFUL ANGEL (Operation Allied Force) and theirimplications forfurther development of the crisis management concept throughout adoption of the Strategic Concepts in 1999 and 2010 and relevant doctrines, as well as throughout building the Allied related capabilities. Planning, preparation and conducting all the NATO’s crisis management operations after 1999 were based on lessons learned from the operation MERCIFUL ANGEL and the previous NATO’s engagement in the former Yugoslavia. Taking the abovementioned into consideration, this paper seeks to find out how NATO’s military coercive activities in the former Yugoslavia, including aggression on the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia in 1999, has affected its engagement in Afghanistan and Libya, as well as on the crisis management concept as a whole. The research methodology is based on four case studies (NATO interventions in Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Federal Republic Yugoslavia, Afghanistan and Libya) in order to scrutinize common trends in the crisis management operations conducted by the Alliance in these countries and its significance for further development of the crisis management concept.
