European security and defence has turned 20 this year and while more work lies ahead, a lot has been achieved over the past few years. Today, the EU is a global security provider, taking an active role to stabilise our neighbourhood and keep European citizens safe. There is a unique European way to security and peace, and the EU’s civilian and military missions and operations are a part of it. Some of their work can be measured in numbers.
