This chapter examines the emerging institutional framework of a European armaments policy as it manifests itself from the recent developments in the field. It begins with a brief presentation of the political/security, economic, and industrial background of the European defence market, with the purpose of assisting the better understanding of the particularities of this area. It continues by examining European armaments cooperation so far undertaken in fora outside the European Union, with the aim of providing the context which explains the current developments within the EU. It then explores the ongoing initiatives of the EU and evaluates their possible impact. Finally, the chapter concludes that although the new initiatives constitute welcome developments, they have not managed so far to tackle completely the issue of institutional duplication — instead they simply replicated it within the framework of the EU.
