Why the EU needs a Commissioner in Charge of Defense

Date and Time: 16:00 - 17:00 CET

In a context of the relentless Russian war against Ukraine, upcoming elecRons in the US, China’s quest to establish itself as the world’s leading power and Iran’s role as ubiquitous terrorist it is Rme for the European Union to take responsibility for itself.

While the competence for defense policy lies with the member states of the European Union, it is Rme for the President of the EU Commission to put one of the EU Commissioners in charge of Defense.

The Defense Commissioner needs at first to coordinate the support for Ukraine during the war (human, financial, military and reconstrucRon). A common foreign and defense policy, European Sovereignty and self-reliance in vital areas are other issues for which the Defense Commissioner should elaborate proposals.

These and other issues we will discuss with:

  • Marie-Agnes Strack-Zimmermann, FDP, Member of Bundestag and Chair of it’s Defense Committee, Lead candidate FDP for the elections to the European Parliament
  • Francesca Romana D’Antuono, Volt, President of Volt Europe, Lead candidate Italy for the elections to the European Parliament
