EUROPEAN COMMONWEALTH ARMY – CHALLENGE FOR A PROPER EU REGULATION

Carmen Adriana Domocoş

 Abstract

Until ten years ago, the issue of peace and stability in Europe seemed clear, it was only

sporadic and isolated topic the major security risks. As in recent years, however, Russia has

become more aggressive, it is increasingly spoken in public space and diplomatic

environments owing to a potential war in Europe, also taking into account the fluctuating

position of the US Presidential Administration on NATO's involvement in defending

military in Europe in general, and in Eastern Europe in particular. In reality, the European

countries are divided into two categories: those who agree with the idea of a European

Security Force, supporting the formation of a European Commonwealth Army and

European military consolidation; and those who are skeptical about this idea, going to the

point of rejecting it completely, bringing arguments about national sovereignty or

inefficiency. At this level, executive military decisions are taken at a rapid pace and require

full support from the legislature, which is why some countries are not yet ready to give the

European Union the power of decision on its army. Regarding Romania, officials say that

the European Security Force could meet the EU's global and security needs in those areas

where it can do without hindering NATO's operation.
