European security and defense
Faced with the ascension of D. Trump to the post of head of state of the United States, many Europeans are experiencing a loss of con idence in NATO (controlled by the UnitedStates).
The vision of the Belgian professor Biscop(4) on an European Defense also concerns the criteria for intervention. He thus advocates the possibility of having an armed force of intervention in particular to defend the democracies attacked. The professor also explained that an European Defense would make budgetary savings. When French General Langlois asked the speakers of the seminar on the Future of Europe «must NATO be saved?» Professor Biscop replied that the dissolution of NATO would force the Europeans to make a common Defense. The candidate of the party of the Greens Y. Jadot(26), very European, withdrew in favor of his support for the candidate of the socialist party Benoit Hamon(27) and have similar ideas on strengthening cooperation in European Defense (" European and binational brigades "). In order to increase security ef iciency in an European common area, Hamon proposes to set up an European intelligence agency.
