06: New Paradigms for European Security

-
Hauptschule
Breakout / Panel
english language

Change in the international security environment has been dramatic. At the same time, the EU has now enlarged to 28 Member States and ratified the Treaty of Lisbon. These developments demand a fresh look at EU strategy. We have to build and communicate consensus on strategic issues and translate it into specific parameters for action. Putting European security and defence on a new strategic footing is not free from risk. Nevertheless, how can we create accurate and accepted strategic tools, such as a revised European Security Strategy, to actively shape and engage in the current and future international security arena?
