  Add to Calendar 2018-05-21 9:30 2018-05-22 16:30 Europe/Paris Understanding the EU's Foreign Security and Defense Policy in Times of Crisis

The European Union is, according to most pundits, seeing times of crisis. Starting from the migration crisis, to Syria at the borders, Brexit on the domestic plan and ever growing popularity for rightwing parties, what we are witnessing is a slow unravelling of the European project.
And yet, looking at the foreign policy of the Union, in particular security, defence and diplomacy, the vigour of the EU seems more pronounced than ever.
Given all of these developments, a closer scrutiny is required on our current theories as well as our existing explanations of the empirical material available. This workshop is meant to address both theories on EU foreign, security and defence policy as well as evidence available. It will combine policy insights and academic research, in its search for the answer to the question: where is the European Union headed, in its foreign policy?
Our four main debate focuses will be:
¿ Theory
¿ Foreign and security policy developments in the EU after 2009
¿ Actorness
¿ Diplomacy
