EU policies – Delivering for citizens: Security and defence

28-06-2019

Security and defence policy in the European Union is predominantly a competence of the Member States. At the same time, a common security and defence policy, which could progressively lead to a European defence union, is enshrined in the Lisbon Treaty. Since 2016, there has been significant progress in that direction, with several initiatives in the area of security and defence having been proposed and initiated under the 2014-2019 mandate of the Commission and the European Parliament.

Security and defence policy in the European Union is predominantly a competence of the Member States. At the same time, a common security and defence policy, which could progressively lead to a European defence union, is enshrined in the Lisbon Treaty. Since 2016, there has been significant progress in that direction, with several initiatives in the area of security and defence having been proposed and initiated under the 2014-2019 mandate of the Commission and the European Parliament. The idea that the European Union should deliver in the area of security and defence has become more and more popular with EU citizens. The crises in the EU's eastern and southern neighbourhoods, such as the occupation of Crimea and conflicts in the Middle East, have created an environment of insecurity in which the EU is called upon to do more. Following the Council decision of 2013 and particularly since the launch of the EU global strategy in 2016, the EU has been working to respond to these needs predominantly by implementing in full the provisions of the Lisbon Treaty. In recent years, it has begun the implementation of ambitious initiatives in the area of security and defence, such as permanent structured cooperation (PESCO), the European defence action plan, including a new defence fund to finance research and development of EU military capabilities, closer and more efficient cooperation with the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), a plan to facilitate military mobility within and across the EU, and revision of the financing of its civilian and military missions and operations to make them more effective. These new initiatives are illustrated in the relevant proposals for the new multiannual financial framework (2021-2027) and the accompanying off-budget instruments. Given EU leaders' support in the recent past for further initiatives in EU security and defence policy, important debates are likely to take place in future on the possible progressive framing of a European defence union. This is an update of an earlier briefing issued in advance of the 2019 European elections.

This is the second EU Peace and Security Outlook produced by the European Parliamentary Research Service (EPRS). The series is designed to analyse and explain the contribution of the European Union to the promotion of peace and security internationally through its various external policies. The study provides an overview of the issues and current state of play. It looks first at the concept of peace and the changing nature of the geopolitical environment. It then focuses on the centrality of the promotion of peace and security in the EU's external action and proceeds to an analysis of the practical pursuit of these principles in three main areas of EU policy: development, democracy support, and security and defence, as well as in the increasingly relevant area of disinformation and foreign influence. It concludes with the outlook for the future. A parallel study, published separately, focuses specifically on EU peacebuilding efforts in Colombia. The studies have been drafted with a view to their presentation at the Normandy World Peace Forum, in June 2019.

Estado de las relaciones UE-EE. UU.

Transcurrido año y medio de la presidencia de Donald Trump, las relaciones transatlánticas continúan adaptándose a las nuevas realidades de la política exterior de «America First». Sus consecuencias han afectado a diversos ámbitos, como el clima, la defensa, las sanciones y la cooperación en instituciones multilaterales. Las relaciones comerciales EU-EE.

Transcurrido año y medio de la presidencia de Donald Trump, las relaciones transatlánticas continúan adaptándose a las nuevas realidades de la política exterior de «America First». Sus consecuencias han afectado a diversos ámbitos, como el clima, la defensa, las sanciones y la cooperación en instituciones multilaterales. Las relaciones comerciales EU-EE. UU. se han deteriorado de forma significativa. Sin embargo, tras la visita del presidente de la Comisión Jean-Claude Juncker a los EE. UU. en julio, se están preparando nuevas conversaciones comerciales bilaterales. Durante el período parcial de sesiones de septiembre, se espera que el Parlamento Europeo debata un informe de propia iniciativa sobre estas cuestiones.

2018 NATO summit: A critical time for European defence

10-07-2018

On 11 and 12 July 2018 the NATO Heads of State and Government will meet in Brussels for the 28th NATO summit. The summit comes at a time of tension in transatlantic relations, but also of continuing threats and challenges posed to the alliance. Against this background, leaders will focus on strengthening defence and deterrence, modernising the alliance and enhancing relations with the EU. Burden-sharing among allies is set to be one of the most controversial items on the agenda. In 2018 only eight ...

On 11 and 12 July 2018 the NATO Heads of State and Government will meet in Brussels for the 28th NATO summit. The summit comes at a time of tension in transatlantic relations, but also of continuing threats and challenges posed to the alliance. Against this background, leaders will focus on strengthening defence and deterrence, modernising the alliance and enhancing relations with the EU. Burden-sharing among allies is set to be one of the most controversial items on the agenda. In 2018 only eight out of twenty nine NATO members are estimated to be reaching the 2 % of gross domestic product (GDP) defence spending target. The Brussels summit aims to push forward the agenda, decisions and actions agreed upon at previous summits, notably in Wales (2014) and Warsaw (2016). Yet there are fears that the insistence of US President Donald Trump that the focus be placed on burden sharing and demands that the NATO allies spend more on defence, might lead to the side-lining of other items on the agenda. The situation is aggravated by the current climate in transatlantic relations, which has deteriorated since the most recent G7 summit in Canada. The summit in Brussels will also seek to secure progress on EU-NATO cooperation, aiming to produce a second joint statement, following that agreed upon in Warsaw in 2016. After two years of increased EU action to build up strategic autonomy in defence through initiatives such as PESCO and the European Defence Fund, cooperation with NATO is critical when it comes to taking European defence forward.

US counter-terrorism since 9/11: Trends under the Trump administration

25-05-2018

The fight against terrorism has dominated the national security agenda in the United States since Al Qaeda's terrorist attacks of 11 September 2001 (9/11). To improve the country's intelligence and homeland security apparatus, the presidential administrations of George W. Bush and Barack Obama implemented a series of legislative, organisational, policy, and personnel reforms.

The fight against terrorism has dominated the national security agenda in the United States since Al Qaeda's terrorist attacks of 11 September 2001 (9/11). To improve the country's intelligence and homeland security apparatus, the presidential administrations of George W. Bush and Barack Obama implemented a series of legislative, organisational, policy, and personnel reforms. The new administration under Donald Trump is continuing these efforts and has put particular emphasis on restricting the entry of and tightening the vetting process for refugees and immigrants. The administration has released a series of documents that provide strategic guidance for the US approach to national security and defence. Today, the US domestic counter-terrorism strategy focuses on radical Islamic terrorist threats, stopping the movement of foreign terrorist fighters, and countering the spread of radicalisation. In this context, cyberspace is of particular interest, since the internet provides opportunities for terrorists to inspire, radicalise and recruit followers; raise funds; communicate through encrypted apps; and supply guidance and instructions to followers for carrying out attacks. The European Union and the United States are key partners in the fight against terrorism, including through NATO.

12-04-2018

Tras la decisión del Reino Unido de abandonar la Unión como consecuencia del referéndum celebrado en junio de 2016, la Unión inició una profunda reflexión sobre el futuro de Europa, que sigue teniendo lugar en diversos foros e instituciones. El debate ha cobrado un nuevo impulso: la agilización de las negociaciones con el Reino Unido sobre su salida de la Unión, los resultados electorales en algunos Estados miembros y las próximas elecciones europeas que se celebrarán en mayo de 2019 han repercutido ...

Tras la decisión del Reino Unido de abandonar la Unión como consecuencia del referéndum celebrado en junio de 2016, la Unión inició una profunda reflexión sobre el futuro de Europa, que sigue teniendo lugar en diversos foros e instituciones. El debate ha cobrado un nuevo impulso: la agilización de las negociaciones con el Reino Unido sobre su salida de la Unión, los resultados electorales en algunos Estados miembros y las próximas elecciones europeas que se celebrarán en mayo de 2019 han repercutido sobre la profundidad del debate y la visibilidad de las posturas de los diversos actores implicados. En este contexto, el Parlamento Europeo viene organizando desde principios de 2018 debates plenarios sobre el futuro de Europa con jefes de Estado o de Gobierno: el primer ministro irlandés, Leo Varadkar, en enero, el primer ministro croata, Andrej Plenković, en febrero, y el primer ministro portugués, António Costa, en marzo. El presidente francés, Emmanuel Macron, pronunciará un discurso durante la sesión plenaria de abril de 2018. El primer ministro belga, Charles Michel, y el primer ministro de Luxemburgo, Xavier Bettel, han confirmado su participación a principios de mayo en Bruselas y a finales del mes en Estrasburgo, respectivamente. El presente briefing proporciona una visión general de la situación actual del debate en una serie de ámbitos políticos clave, como el futuro de la Unión Económica y Monetaria, la dimensión social de la Unión, o los avances recientes de la política migratoria de la Unión, así como la seguridad y la defensa. Del mismo modo, el briefing incluye un análisis preliminar sobre el futuro marco financiero plurianual posterior a 2020, y debates sobre asuntos institucionales más amplios.
