Michael Ruhle's position as Senior Policy Analyst at NATO Headquarters in Brussels has given him an insider's knowledge of the developing conflict in Kosovo.
An expert on European security and strategic planning, Ruhle studied law and political science at the University of Bonn and then worked at the Research Institute of the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftun as a Volkswagen Fellow. He also spent several months as a visiting fellow at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington, D.C. Since 1991, he has served at the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) headquarters in Brussels and has become a senior planning officer in the policy planning and speechwriting section in the political affairs division.
Ruhle's recent publications include: "NATO's Evolving Role in the New Europe" in European Security (Fall 1992); "The End of the Armchair Strategist" in Comparative Strategy (April-June, 1993); and "NATO and Crisis Management" in European Security (Winter 1994).
