This study examined the diplomatic practices employed by the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) in response to the Russia-Ukraine conflict, with a focus on crisis management, political engagements, and efforts to promote dialogue and conflict resolution. The research problem centres on exploring the challenges faced by NATO in effectively addressing the conflict while balancing differing member state interests and the delicate interplay between deterrence and de-escalation. The key objectives are to analyze NATO’s diplomatic practices and identify the obstacles hindering its approach. The study adopted the Realism theory as the theoretical framework and utilized a qualitative research methodology, including literature review and analysis of official NATO statements and documents. The findings revealed NATO’s commitment to collective defense, but also the complexities in aligning diverse member States’ interests. Despite diplomatic efforts, the conflict remains unresolved, underscoring the need for continued cooperation and dialogue. The conclusion highlighted that NATO’s diplomatic practices in response to the Russia-Ukraine conflict demonstrated its commitment to regional security and stability. The study recommended among others that, NATO must actively work to strengthen alliance cohesion by fostering open dialogue and understanding among member States. This can be achieved through regular consultations and forums should be established to address divergent views and build consensus on collective security issues.
