IRIS and SWP publish overview of the Franco-German affairs in Security and Defence.

images (2)As the 17th Franco-German summit of ministers in Berlin kicks off today, the French Institute for International Relations and Strategic Studies IRIS and the German SWP publish a complete open overview of the Franco-German Defense relationship.
The on-going transformation of French and German militaries has created challenges, but it has also opened new avenues for cooperation. This paper provides a full assessment of the current state of Franco-German affairs in security and defence, and set out a potential way forward in view of such opportunities. It also highlights the importance of creating a landscape that facilitates meaningful cooperation. To create such a favorable landscape, the authors make a series of recommendations, which include revitalizing a number of channels for dialogue.
