Chair: Quentin Peel, Mercator Senior Fellow, Europe Programme, Chatham House
The director general of the European Military Staff will offer his thoughts on the further development of military cooperation within the EU institutions, both from an operational and defence policy perspective. He will give an overview of the current military aspects of the European External Action Service and discuss steps that his department will take to deal with new challenges, such as hybrid and cyber threats. He will discuss the EU’s relationship with the defence industry and the preparation of an EU strategy and security policy document planned for spring next year.
