The purpose of this book is to describe and analyze the instrumental role European naval forces might play in developing and sustaining a future foreign and security policy for the community of European states. First, Europe's rapidly changing security environment is analyzed with a keen eye for the possible development of a European ""grand strategy"" (foreign and security policy) for the near and longer-term future. Derived from this analysis, the present context and possible future directions are established for a common European maritime strategy.;Next, the theoretical challenges and the practical solutions are discussed vis-a-vis the primary tasks and capabilities of European naval forces, the execution of naval operations (including the provision of seapower) in defence of strategic European interests. Then, the issue of good governance at sea is addressed. The requirement for naval involvement in policing the seas and a concept for a European approach to ""good governance at sea"" are discussed. In conclusion, the relevance of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) is scrutinized. Special attention is paid to the potential for a joint European-UNCLOS initiative and its associated instruments.;The individual chapters are contributed by experts in the field of international and maritime security affairs. This book is intended for European policy-makers, naval planners, officers-under-training in naval and defence academies and maritime institutes, and students in international relations and maritime law.
