Embedding NATO into the European Union Global Strategy: the missing link?

With the upcoming publication of the European Union Global Strategy, expectations around a stronger foreign policy role for the EU are rising. This leads to a rethinking about its role as a security actor, which cannot be thought without NATO. While there are difficulties in advancing the agenda of institutional cooperation, there now exist clear incentives, due to the nature of threats or the economic situation to warrant the beginning of a changed relationship.

The Brussels Monitor is a new publication by EUROPEUM Institute for European Policy which intends to raise awareness about the innerworkings of the European Union and how they impact the influence of the Czech Republic within EU structures. The series, which will be published on a monthly basis, will feature unique and exclusive analysis, by Brussels or Prague-based authors, on issues that are at the heart of the Czech-EU relationship.
