Evaluation of the CSDP/ESDP (Common Security and Defence Policy/European Security and Defence Policy)
The Netherlands and the EU are at a crossroads with respect to the focus of their security and defence policies and are facing new strategic choices. Therefore the independent Policy and Operations Evaluations Department (IOB) of the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs started an evaluation with regard to the Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP) covering the period from 2013-2019. The objective of this research is to map the challenges the Netherlands has faced and to derive lessons from them. The evaluation is part of an overall evaluation of section 2, ‘Security and Stability’, of the budget of the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
This evaluation focuses on Dutch policies and activities under the three sub-goals that aim to contribute to strengthening tax systems in developing countries, thereby focusing on the coherence, relevance and effects of these policies and activities.
