  • Titill er á ensku The European Defence Market: Can the EU work for a stronger European defence industry without undermining its role as an international peace promoter?
  • Meistara
  • The goal of the research is to analyse the European defence sector and assess why the European Union is striving to change well-established procedures for defence production and trade. To that end a comprehensive overview of the sector, and of relevant EU policies, will be provided.
    Since the creation of the European single market armaments and other defence-related products have been formally excluded from its rules and regulations. However, many reports have concluded that the European defence market is becoming increasingly uncompetitive and greater integration is necessary if European states want to maintain national production as well as their technological and industrial base.
    The data the research has presented shows that European sector is characterised by different national polices. This results in lack of competition, various inefficiencies and increased costs.
    The main finding is that the EU’s efforts to bring the defence market towards rules more similar to the single market need not undermine its role as an international peace promoter. A regulated and open market should bring closer scrutiny and better business practices in the sector. The element of hypocrisy lies in the way member states circumvent EU norms in their national export policies.
