This chapter explores the EU-NATO relations with regard to security and defence matters. In both NATO and the EU there is a legal basis for the development of a European role in security and defence. When one looks at overall objectives and main principles, there is consistency between the EU and NATO. This does not guarantee that both organisations will evolve in the same direction: arrangements must be made in order to put this theory into practice. NATO-EU relations face three major challenges: subsidiarity, interoperability, and a more balanced partnership between European members and the United States.

Keywords:   European Union, NATO, interoperability, subsidiarity, security, defence, United States
