Defense and Security

In order to avoid the risk of a strategic downgrade raised by the erosion of their military capacities, Europeans must undertake to work together more and to clarify the role of the armed forces outside the EU. Ensuring the EU’s security has become a major political challenge to which Member States cannot respond with unilateral measures, especially as the line between external and internal threats becomes blurred.
The Jacques Delors Institute strives to promote a compelling European vision that will more proactively build up a responsible and effective collective security system.
