L'Unione europea e la gestione delle crisi: istituzioni e capacità


Over the last decade, the European Union (EU) has shown a growing activism in dealing with both regional and global security challenges. However, the EU’s architecture for crisis management and its capabilities (civilian and military) do not yet meet the needs dictated by current challenges and threats. This publication offers an overview of the progress achieved by the EU – both at the institutional and operational levels – through its Common Security and Defence Policy, and identifies the critical elements and the potential for improvement in the coming years. This study has been conducted by the Istituto Affari Internazionali (IAI) for the project Science for Peace promoted by the Fondazione Umberto Veronesi and has been presented in the framework of Science for Peace 2nd Annual World Conference, Milan, 18-19 November 2010.

Translation by Daniela Fogliada, Giordano Merlicco and Leonardo Tiengo of: EU Crisis Management: Institutions and Capabilities in the Making, Roma, IAI, November 2010 (IAI Quaderni English series 19).
