More Europe in Defence or No Europe

Giovanni Faleg


CEPS Associate Research Fellow Giovanni Faleg contributed a chapter (co-authored with Gianni Bonvicini) on the institutional aspect and the implementation of permanent structured cooperation in European defence. The publication “More Europe on Defence or No Europe” was prepared by a team of researcher from the Istituto Affari Internazionali (IAI) in view of the European Council on defence of December 2013. It is argued that Only a greater European integration of the national armed forces can keep them effective and efficient. Some steps forward in this direction are possible, although difficult, on several levels: the implementation of the pooling and sharing approach on the military level; the establishment of the permanent structured cooperation on the institutional level; the definition of a European roadmap for dual-use technologies on the technological level; the launch of European procurement programmes co-financed by the EU on the industrial level.
