New book on European Crisis Response Operations

How do European armed forces generate the desired political effects in containing crises? In his new book, The Politico-Military Dynamics of European Crisis Response Operations, Alexander Mattelaer argues that modern operations rely on a strategic template based on deterrence and capacity-building. The book appeared in the new "European Union in International Affairs" series published by Palgrave Macmillan and institutionally supported by the IES.
