The Civilian CSDP Compact - A Success Story for the EU's Crisis Management Cinderella?

Summary: This policy brief by the European Union Institute for Security Studies (EUISS) was written shortly before the Compact was adopted. It argues that civilian CSDP will need three essential elements to succeed: (1) a renewed and credible strategic framework in accordance with the evolution of the security context  – through the April 2018 Concept Paper; (2) developing and adapting existing capabilities and identifying additional needs – through the July 2018 Civilian Capabilities Development Plan; and (3) ensuring a sustainable and broader commitment by EU institutions and member states – through the Civilian Compact.
