Common Security and Defense Policy (CSDP) of the European Union consists two dimensions of missions: the military CSDP and the civilian CSDP. The former serves strategic military missions through Military Planning and Conduct Capability. The latter is developing more and more prominently under nowadays complex global politics and focuses on crisis management and conflict prevention. The coordination and nexus of military-civilian missions contribute together to international peace and security. The civilian CSDP addresses problems such as terrorism, crimes, poverty, human rights, law reform, climate change, sustainable energy, cyber security, corruption, trade, justice and human affairs (JHA), just to mention.
