The Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP) is fundamental to the European Union’s (EU) ambitions in the fi eld of global confl ict management. Yet ensuring that CSDP has the coherence and capabilities required and that it is integrated into wider EU confl ict management policy remains a largely unrealised goal. A great deal of analysis has been focused on examining coherence across the EU, specifi cally between the Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP) and CSDP in what was Pillar II and the EU’s other policy tools in what were formally Pillars I and III. However, less focus has been directed at analysing coherence within CFSP and, more specifi cally, within CSDP.
