New CSIS Report on European Defense, Germany’s National Security Strategy, and a Conversation with Mathieu Droin

Max and Donatienne first discuss a new CSIS report about European defense integration and the EU’s role in rebuilding European militaries. They then cover Germany’s first ever national security strategy and a recent meeting between the leaders of France, Germany, and Poland ahead of the NATO summit in July. Lastly, Max and Donatienne turn to a conversation with Mathieu Droin about European naval capabilities and why they matter to the broader European defense landscape.
