The withdrawal of Afghanistan in particular has given new dynamism to the European debate about the capabilities and structures of the Common Security and Defense Policy (CSDP) of the EU, especially the rapid reaction force. The relevant structures and capabilities are basically available in the EU and its member states.

The EU military staff plays an important role in the common security and defense policy. He assists the Chairman of the Military Committee of the European Union on military-strategic issues. The Chairman of the Military Committee advises the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy.

The EU currently conducts eighteen military and civilian missions and operations under the common security and defense policy.
