The research line “Europe” deals with security and defence issues related to Europe in a broad sense. The CSDS pays a particular attention to the European Union’s Common Foreign and Security Policy by studying e.g. the development of military capabilities and the deployment of external missions. The CSDS is also interested in the role of the European Union and European states in contemporary conflicts or in dealing with major powers.
