This article focuses on the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO), sometimes rather prematurely referred to as 'The NATO of the East'. In concentrating on its security-related aspects, this work will analyse the SCO's development towards a full-grown security organisation i.e., on its way to an alliance with a span of activities and a depth of cooperation similar to that of NATO. However, in doing so the focus remains on the SCO, not on a comparison with the Western alliance.
