Protecting Europe

Meeting the EU’s military level of ambition in the context of Brexit

The ability of the European Union to act in defense, today and in the future, is an important reference point in the discussion relating to strategic autonomy and to the impact of the British exit from the Union (Brexit). The EU has set itself a military level of ambition. This study assesses to what extent the EU is able to fulfil this level of ambition, today and with an outlook towards a 2030 horizon.
