After the creation of the internal market and the introduction of the euro, the European Union embarked on another big project - a common security and defence policy, building on the steps taken thus far with ESDP and the European Security Strategy.
Karl von Wogau, the chairman of the Defence and Security subcommittee of the European Parliament, has brought together a remarkable line-up of key political figures and defence experts from across Europe to present their ideas about the road ahead.
Their contributions show that there is the political will to strengthen Europe’s role in the world. At the same time they also demonstrate how much ground still remains to be covered and the differences that persist over the ultimate destination.
