European Defense in a New Transatlantic Context

After years of relative inactivity, European defense cooperation has recently made significant strides. As a result, there is now a pressing need for more robust transatlantic dialogue on how the EU’s growing ambitions in the area of security and defense relates to NATO and the United States. A new joint project between Carnegie’s Europe Program in Washington and Carnegie Europe in Brussels will explore three aspects of the EU defense dimensions: strategy, capabilities, and the defense industrial issues. The project will encompass three tracks: conducting in-depth research and analysis, running a series of roundtables, and developing policy recommendations.

The project is co-led by Erik Brattberg and Tomáš Valášek and is supported by the governments of Finland and Sweden.
