ABSTRACT
The European Security and Defense Policy could be a fundamental shift away from what European Union was intended to be. Change is complex and can affect its relations with NATO. If EU is going to be seen as a strong military organization as well as an economic one, these will require an appropriate culture and organization, as well as new policies, in terms of achieving strategic space and well-defined relations with other international institutions. The outcomes of this cannot be immediately anticipated, and will depend upon the political will of European states and the evolution of security environment in Europe and neighbor regions. However, it can be observed a gap between the declared level of ambition of EU and the resources made available to put in place the Common Security and Defense Policy.
