Does the Ukraine war mean the EU needs an army?

• 23 min

The European Union has had many different names but it’s always had one goal: a united, peaceful Europe.   That has usually meant closer political and economic ties.   But for some it has also meant getting closer on defence and security and for some that in turn has meant the creation, one day, of a united European army.   So has the war in Ukraine shifted the dial towards a European army?   In today’s episode with Elisabeth Braw, a resident fellow at the American Enterprise Institute think tank, talks us through the history as well as the pros and cons of any future united army for the EU.   Sources: EuroNews, France 24, Newsnight, Sky News   Produced by: Joe Lord-Jones
