Highlights - In-depth analysis: The Lisbon Treaty's Provisions on CFSP/CSDP - Subcommittee on Security and Defence

Fri, 06/11/2015 - 14:29
Since the Treaty of Lisbon entered into force in December 2009, major efforts have been made to implement the new institutional set-up it created. The European Parliament has acquired a greater role, particularly in the fields of foreign policy oversight and budgetary scrutiny.
Nevertheless, many provisions of the Lisbon Treaty, in the areas of foreign, security and defence policies remain non-implemented owing to a lack of political support by EU Member States fearing a 'two-speed Europe' and loss of control over these fields in favour of the EU institutions.

Highlights - Workshop Pooling & sharing: Member States’ engagement and the support by the EU - Subcommittee on Security and Defence

Fri, 06/11/2015 - 14:21
The disastrous impact of the fiscal crisis on the EU Member States’ (MS) defence capabilities has forced capitals to rethink the way they generate and maintain these capabilities. In order to prevent the further loss of military power, they proclaimed a significant shift in their approach to defence cooperation: to move from an ad-hoc approach and bottom-up approach in cooperation to a more systematic and top-down one.

Study - Supporting European Security and Defence with Existing EU Measures and Procedures - PE 534.993 - Subcommittee on Security and Defence - Committee on Foreign Affairs

Fri, 30/10/2015 - 00:00
Focusing on the support of non-CSDP policies for CSDP measures, both in the field of crisis management and defence, this study submits that CSDP cannot effectively contribute to EU external action by itself, but only in coherence with other EU policies and instruments. The study focuses on nine different issue areas of the EU which are of particular interest in the context of CSDP: European Neighbourhood Policy, development cooperation, internal policies and financing instruments in the context of the EU’s international crisis management, as well as innovation policies, industrial policies, regional policy, trade policy and space policy in the context of the EU’s defence policy. The study builds on existing evidence of synergising effects of CSDP and other non-CSDP policies and points to the potential impact which the closer interplay of CSDP and non-CSDP policies could have. Focusing on policy adaptation as well as institutional cooperation of EU actors in each of the policy relationships, the study provides a comprehensive overview of the linkage between CSDP and each of the respective policies and draws a large set of tailor-made recommendations in the field.
