A cooperation between the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) & the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS) UK & Ireland Office

European security is undergoing a period of transformation, driven by major shifts in the international political and economic order which are coupled with changes within the continent, most notably the departure of the United Kingdom from the European Union in 2020.

A new project started in 2020, carried out by the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) in London in cooperation with the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS) UK & Ireland Office. Through reports, workshops and podcasts the project will explore the emergence of ad hoc cooperation amongst European states for the provision of shared security and the promotion of broader, global defence objectives.

Whilst governments remain preoccupied with the shape and organisation of European security, nations have developed ad hoc military and security initiatives beyond their continent. These operations appear to point the way to more pragmatic forms of European cooperation, in which nations can operate together for shared security and defence goals in key regions around the world.

This cooperation could add a new dimension to Europe’s ability to adapt to changing international security agendas and help to build confidence in Europe’s evolving security architecture.  At the same time, there are important questions about the scope and sustainability of such initiatives, and how these may fit into an overarching framework of European security cooperation.
