The EU-US Military Relationship. The recent US defence plans have brought the military imbalance between the EU and the US into sharp relief. Assured EU access to US and NATO military assets may be an unrealistic European belief. Kori Schake believes that the most productive way to redress these political and military problems is to encourage not only the emergence of a viable European military force, but also the duplication of capabilities already existing in NATO and US forces. "Constructive Duplication: Reducing EU Reliance on US Military Assets" is published by the Centre for European Reform.
