The Politico-Military Group (PMG) is a body of the Common Security and Defence Policy (CFSP) of the European Union (EU) that carries out preparatory work for the Political and Security Committee (PSC). It covers the political aspects of EU military and civil-military issues, including concepts, capabilities and operations and missions.
The tasks of the PMG include:
- preparing Council conclusions and provides recommendations for the PSC, and monitoring their effective implementation
- contributing to the development of horisontal policy and facilitating information exchanges
The PMG has a particular responsibility regarding partnerships with non-EU countries and other organisations, including EU-NATO relations, as well as exercises. The PMG is chaired by a representative of the EU's High Representative.
