Europe is threatened by instability and crisis, so it would seem natural that the EU should wish to be more united on defense. However, the real debate Europeans should be having is not whether the EU should have an army but rather when European states will finally start intensifying their defense cooperation inside the EU and NATO.
All in all, the prospects for an EU army appear highly uncertain when assessed against the constraining elements of the current political, economic, and societal environment.
