Summary

Summary

Can the European defense industry transform itself to meet the challenges of the new century? With the Western European defense industry virtually reduced to four major players, what will its role be in the global defense industry? The author provides an overview of the market; describes the players, their activities, and their partnerships; and explores the marketOs driving factors. She posits alternative scenarios by examining these factors and traces the implication of the scenarios for the progress of defense industrial cooperation. She concludes that the industry is in difficulty and suggests areas of change to improve the industry's outlook.
