This chapter examines the EU’s decision to expand the Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP) to include defence. It begins by considering the significant developments in the WEU’s half-century of existence which led to the linkage between the EU and WEU. The events that reformed the EU and CFSP, and led to the revival for the common defence policy by integrating EU and WEU capabilities are reviewed. Some conditions that may forestall integration ‘spillover’ from turning into intergovernmental ‘spillback’ are discussed.

Keywords:   European Union, Common Foreign and Security Policy, defence policy
