Welcome words
 
 

Our peace and security, never to be taken for granted, are increasingly threatened by events on our doorstep and beyond.  The Treaty on European Union provides the legal ground for effective action by Member States to tackle these threats in the EU’s neighbourhood.
 
From the establishment of the Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP) in 1999 to the 30 civilian and military missions carried out since, the EU has contributed to stability and helped maintain peace in the Balkans, the South Caucasus, Africa and the Middle East. In 2013 EU leaders set out a roadmap for more effective capabilities and a new impetus to the CSDP, while underlining our important relationship with NATO.
 
The Security and Defence subcommittee (SEDE) has established itself as a key forum for fostering debate and examining CSDP developments in terms of institutions, capabilities and operations. It is an essential tool for holding to account CSDP decision-makers and for the policy to be understood by EU citizens.
 
In this 8th legislature,  SEDE will continue to scrutinise the CSDP, making sure it responds quickly and effectively to new and existing challenges to the security of the Union and its citizens.
