The paper analyses permanent structured cooperation in the European Union. It is considered a specific form of the mechanism of enhanced cooperation established within the Common Security and Defence Policy. According to the Lisbon Treaty, the Common Security and Defence Policy is an integral part of the Common Foreign and Security Policy. It provides the Union with an operational capacity drawing on civilian and military assets. The Union may use them in missions outside the Union for peace-keeping operations, conflict prevention and strengthening of international security in accordance with the principles of the United Nations Charter. The performance of these tasks is carried out by using capabilities provided by the Member States. One of the most important novelties provided by the Lisbon Treaty is the possibility of establishment of permanent structured cooperation within the European Union framework. Those Member States whose military capabilities fulfil higher criteria and which have made more binding commitments to one another in this area with a view to the most demanding missions establish permanent structured cooperation within the Union framework. Those Member States that wish to participate in permanent structured cooperation and fulfil the criteria and which have made on military capabilities commitments set out in the Protocol on permanent structured cooperation notify their intention to the Council and to the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy. Within three months following the notification, the Council adopts a decision establishing permanent structured cooperation and determining the list of participating Member States. The Council acts by a qualified majority after consulting the High Representative. Any Member State, which at a later stage wishes to participate in permanent structured cooperation, shall notify its intention to the Council and to the High Representative.
