Coelmont: the desired strategic outcome of the EU Council on defence

Post thumbnail print


Will the EU summit on 19 December 2013 be seen as a milestone in the development of our Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP), similar to the St. Malo meeting in 1998? Or will it be judged a lost opportunity? That will depend on the political message delivered, on some key decisions to underpin its credibility, and, on how all this will be communicated.
