The past five years have witnessed an extraordinary sequence of events: increased global terrorism; natural disasters of an unprecedented scale; kidnappings of European Union (EU) citizens in conflict zones; coups; and assassinations of political leaders. Such events have posed new challenges to global security. The EU, as an increasingly global security actor, has a responsibility to contribute to solving conflicts and assist wartorn countries or those devastated by natural disaster. Faster and More United?: The Debate About Europe's Crisis Response Capacity discusses how the EU can use its resources to respond more effectively to the contemporary challenges in civilian crisis response. It presents a collection of writings and personal insights on the current state of play and future directions of European Crisis Response.This publication brings together expert opinion from EU institutions, European think-tanks and universities, high-ranking officials from the EU Military Staff, and experienced practitioners from non-governmental organisations.This work is divided into six sections: EU Response to Conflict; Field Experience; The EU Working in Partnership; Improving Quality in Civilian Crisis Response; Taking EU Decision Support to the 21st Century; and, Connectivity and Security of the Field Staff.
