Part #3 Defence and Security

What is the role of neighbours and strategic partners in the future of European defence policy?

In this video, Monika Sus, PhD Postdoctoral Fellow and Project Leader at the Hertie School of Governance gives her insights about the role of neighbours and strategic partners in the future of European defence policy. Monika suggests that inclusion of its neighbours and strategic partners is crucial for the EU and its defence policy. Only by bringing the capabilities of the neighbouring states and its strategic partners such as the US, the post UK Brexit also Norway, Sweden or Switzerland, the EU will be able to tackle the security challenges (that is operative involvement). When it comes to strategic involvement of the partners, it is about recognition that the EU gets by engaging external parties in defence and security policy. The involvement of partners makes the EU recognizable as a security player in a global stage.
