Reviewing the Strategic Compass

Expert workshop at the AIES

Nov 28, 2023 / Vienna / European Security and Defence

On November 28, 2023, the Austria Institute for European and Security Policy hosted an exclusive expert workshop on “Reviewing the Strategic Compass: Outlook on the EU crisis response capability beyond 2024”. Its goal was to assess the progress made in implementing the European Union's Strategic Compass under its four pillars (Act, Secure, Invest, Partner) after 1.5 years. Particular attention was paid to the EU Rapid Deployment Capacity planned for 2025 and the EU's defence industrial initiatives.

Four experts presented their insights at the workshop: Jean-Pierre van Aubel, Expert on Defense Policy and Strategy at the European External Action Service; Dr. Matthias Dembinski, Senior Research Fellow at the Peace Research Institute Frankfurt (PRIF); Federico Santopinto, Senior Research Fellow and Head of the Europe, Strategy and Security Programme at the French Institute for International and Strategic Affairs (IRIS); and Aleksandra Kozioł, Senior Analyst at the Polish Institute of International Affairs (PISM). The discussion was moderated by AIES Research Fellow Ulf Steindl.

The workshop was held in cooperation with the Austrian Federal Ministry of Defense.
