Oratio pro PESCO
By Sven Biscop (2017-01-23)
Everybody is talking about Permanent Structured Cooperation (PESCO) – will we finally do it now? And will we get it right? For if PESCO is activated only to launch initiatives that could also have been taken without it, the opportunity will be wasted. To bring real added value, PESCO must be sufficiently ambitious and make the step from cooperation to effective integration in defence.
