European Defence: Expectations and Demands of non-EU partners
Russia's war of aggression on Ukraine has shown that the EU is not a leader in security and defense. Years of underinvestment in defense mean that the EU and its member states still depend on the United States for their security. Internal divisions mean the EU remains incapable of effectively using the military capacity it has and must rely on NATO to organize European defense. At the same time, demands on European defense from the EU’s partners are increasing. What do the EU’s key external partners want from the EU defense and what do they expect? This panel examines how the US, the UK, and NATO see EU as a security actor. It looks at what demands they partners are making of the EU in the area defense and whether the EU can meet them?

This event is part of the German Forum on Security Policy, organised by the Federal Academy for Security Policy (BAKS).
