Abstract:

At the beginning of the fifties, a European defense community proved to be beyond realization. In 1989 Ian Gambles discussed the matter anew and concluded that the prospects for a European pillar or defense entity lay in external developments. The turn of this decade showed breathtaking changes in the area of security and European integration. Hence it was worthwhile to analyze the chances for a European defense entity. The study first analyzes the recent changes and how they influence the matter. Then it describes recent, current and future activities within NATO, the European Communities, the West European Union and the Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe. Based on the results it describes a possible scenario and the part the armed forces can play.
