Category: Europe, European Union

The European Union’s common security and defense policy remains incomplete; only slowly is the EU becoming a strategic actor. Pieter Feith, international crisis management expert, and Claudia Major, deputy head of the research division for international security policy at the German Institute for International and Security Affairs (SWP), discussed the current standstill on the establishment of a robust security and defense policy.

The speaker accepted an invitation from the DGAP’s Alfred von Oppenheim Center for European Policy Studies (AOZ) within the framework of its “Brussels Briefings” series. Almut Möller, head of the AOZ, moderated the discussion of experts and policy makers. Pieter Feith led the International Civilian Office (ICO) in Kosovo between April 2008 and September 2012. A report detailing the ICO’s work  – “State Building and Exit” – has recently been published. DGAP-Online’s interview with Peter Feith on the difficulties of forming a state and Kosovo’s EU prospects is published on our website Dr. Claudia Major’s homepage
