European defence

Europe faces many security issues, with an ongoing Russian threat in the east, the Middle East and North Africa in turmoil, and the rise of cyber warfare.

Europe can no longer rely wholeheartedly on US security guarantees, meaning it must have the capability to protect European interests with European troops, including, when necessary, through interventions.

This new level of capability requires investment, especially in new technologies, but also greater advancement of pooling and sharing equipment between countries.

In addition, being able to guarantee the security of its citizens and preserving peace on the continent is crucial for the European Union to prove its legitimacy.
