European Strategic Autonomy: What Level of Military Ambition?

Addressing vulnerability and promoting security
Posted Apr 06, 2019 | Egmont Royal Institute for International Relations, Jo Coelmont

Whereas the EU Global Strategy (EUGS) defines a level of political ambition to defend the EU’s vital interests - security, prosperity and democracy – it is largely silent on the corresponding level of military ambition. In this Security Policy Brief for the Egmont Royal Institute for International Relations, Jo Coelmont suggests that recent developments in the EU make it possible for the Member States to agree on an appropriate and affordable level of military ambition. As they have the primary responsibility for the territorial defence of their own continent, they should initiate autonomous crisis management operations, thereby contributing substantially to territorial defence within the NATO framework.
