Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Why the European Defence Agency?

The European Defence Agency has been created to help EU Member States develop their defence capabilities for crisis-management operations under the European Security and Defence Policy.

The Agency will achieve its goals by:

  • Encouraging EU governments to spend defence budgets on meeting tomorrow's challenges, not yesterday's threats;
  • Helping them to identify common needs and promoting collaboration to provide common solutions.

The Agency's success will mean:
  • Better military capabilities;
  • Stronger European defence industries;
  • Better value for European taxpayers.

A society committed to the notion that government is always bad will have bad government. And it doesn't have to be that way. — Paul Krugman
