Faleg, Giovanni and Giovannini, Alessandro (2012) EU Defence Policy after Chicago: Going Smart? CEPS Commentary, 19 May 2012. [Policy Paper]
This CEPS Commentary analyses the impact of the Chicago NATO Summit (May 20-21) and the Smart Defence agenda on the European Union’s defence policy. Will the EU follow NATO and go ‘smart’? The authors point out that the NATO agenda provides indeed a unique chance for the EU to make unprecedented progress on pooling and sharing. They outline a three-part road map to rationalise the EU defence market and put the Union back on track as a credible and capable security provider. The Commentary also stresses that complementarity between the NATO and EU agenda is all important to achieve long-term change.
