On 23 May, the Ministers of Defence of the EU27 will assess the first outcome of the “Ghent Framework” for pooling & sharing of military capabilities. While some defence establishments may be hesitant, now is no time for timidity. Ministers must take the lead for the process to yield substantial results. If “Ghent” was the expression of the will, now the first concrete actions must be taken.
