Posted May 13, 2022 | Wilfried Martens Center for European Studies,

Although the EU was already boosting its security and defence dimension before the war in Ukraine, the hostilities there have made doing so even more necessary. This issue of the European View by the Wilfried Martens Center for European Studies focuses on the future of European defence cooperation, providing ideas for and inputs to various security- and defence-related reflection processes in Brussels and other European capitals. The authors discuss the growing role of the European Commission in EU security and defence cooperation; the EU’s ability to act vis-à-vis the great powers on the world stage; the Union’s plans to establish a permanent naval presence in the Indo-Pacific region; and the significance of EU’s mutual aid and assistance clause, article 42(7) of the Treaty on European Union. The authors also discuss the role of technological development and geo-economics in the new era of great-power competition
