The EU’s New Defence Policy

Since 2016, the EU has reinvigorated the Common Security and Defence Policy by introducing an ambitious package of measures aiming at the EU becoming strategically autonomous – most importantly, the Permanent Structured Cooperation. This symposium edited by Jelena von Achenbach examines the resultant state of EU integration, as well as its future prospects. It also takes up ensuing questions of sovereignty, democratic legitimacy, the rule of law, and civil-military relations.
