On the 14 November 2016 EU member states welcomed the presentation of the Implementation Plan on Security and Defence (SDIP) by the High Representative/Vice-President. The plan serves as a follow-up to the EU Global Strategy (EUGS) with a specific focus on security and defence, but, more than this, the SDIP presents ideas that are directed at turning the EU’s vision on security and defence into action.

With the presentation of the SDIP, and the European Commission’s forthcoming European Defence Action Plan (EDAP), the focus will now turn to producing tangible results.
