Grupy Bojowe jako instrument polityki reagowania kryzysowego Unii Europejskiej

Battle groups as the crisis response policy instrument of the European Union


The process of forming the European Union Battle groups has become an important factor in developing the European Security and Defence Policy (ESDP). The creation of immediate reaction capacity in the EU’ military and anti-crisis actions con solidates cohesion throughout the EU. It al so acts as a strong in centive to intensify other efforts security-wise, such as development of capacity of strategic military transfer or foundation of regular operational command structures. Political role of the future European Union’s Battle groups is worth mentioning as they could provide new perspectives througho ut the ESDP. This project would serve to streng then the European identity as well as in crease the significance of the European Union on the international/global political scene. However, in order to prove successful in becoming the EU’s effective strategic reserve, the Battle groups should be really active and used properly. To ensure that, the EU needs more solidarity as regards concepts and actions (the ESDP still lacks integration due to national differences). Mean while, the EU faces new challenges (e.g. situation in Geor ia and Afghanistan).
