Security and defence - CSDP

ABOUT CSDP

HR/VP Ashton at EUMM HeadquartersHR/VP Ashton at EUMM Headquarters

In a rapidly changing world, the EU is faced with security challenges both in its immediate neighbourhood and further afield.  The Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP) enables the Union to take a leading role in peace-keeping operations, conflict prevention and in the strengthening of the international security. It is an integral part of the EU's comprehensive approach towards crisis management, drawing on civilian and military assets. Since 2003 the EU has launched some 30 peace missions and operations contributing to stabilisation and security in Europe and beyond.

In a time of limited resources Europe also needs to do better with less. The CSDP allows EU Member States to pool their resources and to build stronger defence capabilities to act rapidly and effectively.
