The research analyses the EU member states’ regimes for the control of the defence strategic assets. It is widely based on interviews to the responsible of the implementation of these regimes. Through the analysis of the pros and cons of the different regulations, the study intends to elaborate a model to ensure a harmonized control at the European level. This optimal model, to be recommended to the European Commission, will take into account various aspects such as the impact on industry, costs incurred as well as the political and legal feasibility.
