La cooperazione strutturata permanente dell’Unione europea: disciplina, prassi e ruolo nell’integrazione in materia di difesa comune
The permanent structured cooperation: rules, practice and role in the European defence cooperation
The Permanent Structured Cooperation (PeSCo) provided by for Articles 42 and 46 TEU is a permanent framework for closer cooperation in the field of defence within the EU. It has been established in December 2017 among 25 EU Member States and operationally launched in 2018. Currently there are 34 PeSCo projects covering areas such as training, land, maritime, air, cyber, and joint enablers. What role can PeSCo play in driving the EU towards a common defence policy and, in a future perspective, to a common defence? Moreover, what role for the European Parliament and the Commission in this markedly intergovernmental domain? This contribution aims at giving a comprehensive picture of PeSCo and tries to answer to those questions.
