Shortages of medical products during the COVID-19 pandemic and shifts in the international order have made reshoring of production a topical issue in EU policy debates. This study, requested by the INTA committee, discusses economic and political reasons for reshoring. Analysing supply security, the debate on EU strategic autonomy, and the success of reshoring policies elsewhere, the authors suggest that reshoring should focus on critical sectors and products with supply bottlenecks.
