Abstract

The Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP) has gained importance over the past decades with an increasing number of EU civil and military missions being launched. Yet, the current international security environment is marked by an increased assertiveness from several global and regional powers and rising pressure on multilateral cooperation. Within the EU, a lack of resources and consensus among Member States is often experienced on security issues. This panel hence focuses on the contestation of CSDP, both in its formulation and implementation.
