EU Rapid Deployment Capacity

15.11.2022 EEAS Press Team

The European Union supports peace and stability in its neighbourhood and beyond. As a credible and capable actor in international crisis management, the EU needs to be able to react to conflicts quickly, robustly and effectively. To that end, the EU will develop a Rapid Deployment Capacity (EU RDC) consisting of up to 5000 troops. This EU RDC will be a robust, flexible and scalable military instrument adding to the EU’s broad crisis management toolbox.
