Security and Defence in the Future EU

Since the creation of the European Union, some member states have sought to intensify the military co-operation in the EU and create a common defence to protect the union from external enemies.

The opponents of this development have advocated multilateral solutions and crisis management as the most efficient way to promote stability and peace outside the borders of the union. This report analyses how the European Convention, in the light of the new, post 9/11 2001 security order, seeks to unite these perspectives in a draft to a constitution for Europe.

The report was presented at the seminar Security and defence in the future EU and is a part of the research project Strategy 2004.
