Following the publication of the EU Global Strategy in June, attention has now turned to its implementation. A  Security and Defence Implementation Plan (SDIP) will focus on the EU’s ability to respond to external conflicts and crises, build the capacities of partners affected by fragility and instability, and protect Europe. The EUISS organised a workshop dedicated to the SDIP in Brussels on 17 October, where leading experts and analysts shared their thoughts and ideas with key policymakers and the main drafters of the SDIP

This volume presents a compilation of the memos that these experts drafted following the workshop, in which they outline their preferred level of ambition and priority areas for EU security and defence.
