Common Foreign and Security Policy ESDP/CFSP

In the framework of the Common Foreign & Security Policy (CFSP), the EU has developed a common European Security and Defense policy (ESDP). The member states provide up to 60,000 troops within 60 days for humanitarian tasks, rescue missions, peace-keeping measures and combat. Since January 2007, each half-year two “battle groups” (RDFs) of about 1,500 soldiers each are ready for deployment.
