The European Union Military Staff (EUMS) is the primary source of the European Union's military expertise within the European External Action Service (EEAS) and as such responsible for providing military support in all Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP) domains at the political-strategic and military-strategic levels. 2021 marks the 20 year anniversary since the establishment of the EUMS. As an integral component of the EU ’s Integrated Approach to conflict and crisis, acting under the direction of the EUMC, the EUMS continuously monitors all military aspects of the EU’s CSDP military operations. These operations are EUFOR Operation ALTHEA in Bosnia and Herzegovina, EUNAVFOR MED Operation IRINI in the Mediterranean and EUNAVFOR Operation ATALANTA in the Indian Ocean. The EUMS also supports the Military Planning and Conduct Capability for the EU’s CSDP military training missions, currently in the Central African Republic, Somalia and Mali. We invite you to take a few minutes to enjoy the attached photographs of the work being done in these Operations and Missions.
