  Add to Calendar 2017-02-22 17:00 2017-02-22 18:30 Europe/Paris Book Presentation:The EU's Common Security and Defence Policy: A Learning Organisation / Europe in the World Research Seminar

Institutions create change through ideas and learning. This presentation accounts for transformations in the EU’s Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP) during fifteen years of operations (2001-2016), and argues that the EU evolved into a softer and a more civilian security provider, rather than a military one. The learning process was driven by transnational communities of experts and practitioners, which acted as engines of change. By presenting the CSDP as a ‘learning organisation,’ the seminar also provides an opportunity to discuss the prospects and challenges for security and defence cooperation in the EU, particularly in light of the release of the EU Global Strategy and against the backdrop of a complex geopolitical environment. The event is organised on the occasion of the release of Faleg's book, titled The EU’s Common Security and Defence Policy: Learning Communities in International Organisations, published in 2016 by Palgrave Macmillan.
