About this book
The author examines the extent to which the European Union and its policies influence Europe's defence industry. He suggests that the end of the Cold War and economic globalization are major factors pushing defence industrial issues to the regional level. The book describes institutional struggles between the European Commission, Council and Parliament in this policy area. The interdisciplinary approach addresses political economy, institution building, European security and defence, transatlantic relations, industrial restructuring, and the influence of defence sector interest groups.
