The Eastern Partnership

release date: Jan 01, 2021
The Eastern Partnership
This report assesses three policy dilemmas that need to be considered by the Netherlands and the European Union in order to make the EaP more effective. First, the EU needs to reconcile its geopolitical interests with its normative aspirations. Second, the added value of the EaP’s multilateral track should be deliberated with consideration of the differentiation in bilateral relations with EaP countries. Third, the EU will need to consider how to deal with protracted conflicts, hybrid threats, and other security challenges in the EaP region.

European Strategic Autonomy in Security and Defence

release date: Jan 01, 2020
European Strategic Autonomy in Security and Defence
European strategic autonomy in security and defence is the ability of Europe to make its own decisions, and to have the necessary means, capacity and capabilities available to act upon these decisions, in such a manner that it is able to properly function on its own when needed. From this definition it follows that four interrelated aspects have to be taken into account: the political, institutional, capabilities and technological-industrial dimensions.

From Indices to Insight

release date: Jan 01, 2021
From Indices to Insight
This report advocates a multi-step approach whereby the most readily available, regularly updated and policy-relevant indices and models are combined and visualised in a manner that allows for a comparison over time, within regions, and between different drivers of instability. To this end, it presents a methodology for a structured qualitative discussion and a quantitative assessment by country experts through a Delphi method. As much as data sciences have advanced and reinforced the ability of analysts, it remains exactly at the intersection of quantitative data and qualitative assessment where the risk assessments must take place that feed into early warning/early action processes.

The EU’s Strategic Compass for Security and Defence

release date: Jan 01, 2021
The EU’s Strategic Compass for Security and Defence
The European Union (EU) is developing a Strategic compass for security and defence, to be ready by March 2022. The first semester of 2021 is the phase of the ‘strategic dialogue’ with the member states and institutions of the EU, including the involvement of think tanks and other stakeholders. Commissioned by the Ministries of Defence and Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands, the Clingendael Institute delivers its contribution to the strategic dialogue on the Strategic Compass by focussing on defining more precisely the military level of ambition of the EU and what it implies for capability development and the relationship with NATO. The EU faces a wider set of challenges and threats than ever before. In the global power rivalry between China, Russia and the United States, it is ‘Europe’ that runs the danger of becoming irrelevant and the object of great power actions rather than being a global actor. The arc of instability around Europe is unlikely to turn into an arc of stability. The challenges posed by state and non-state actors – the latter in particular in the southern neighbourhood – require the EU to respond to external conflicts and crises, to support partners to provide security for their own population and to protect the Union and its citizens – the three strategic priorities for the EU’s Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP) as defined five years ago in the Implementation Plan on Security and Defence. While the EU has made progress in many areas – trade policies, partnerships, civilian crisis management – its military tools have remained weak as a result of a lack of political will and the absence of adequate military means.
