  Add to Calendar 2018-10-22 9:30 2018-10-24 18:00 Europe/Paris European Security: Old Trends and New Realities

This Executive Training Seminar will examine the broad range of security risks and challenges currently facing the European Union (EU) and its member states. Europe’s security environment is increasingly complex and uncertain. Some of the challenges that the EU encounters today are ones that it has faced for many decades, such as concern over Russia’s power and intentions and the credibility of the U.S. security commitment to European defense. Others are of more recent vintage, such as Arctic security, spillover effects from the arc of instability that runs along the EU’s southern and southeastern borders, and how best to deter potential Russian encroachment in Eastern Europe and the Baltics. Bringing together academic specialists, policymakers, and think tank experts, this three-day seminar offers an in-depth overview of the scale and scope of the security challenges facing Europe. It outlines possible measures that the EU and its member states could take to address these challenges. Topics include EU initiatives to build independent security and defense capabilities, and appraisals of the various security risks and threats facing the EU’s northern, southern, and eastern flanks, respectively. Through presentations, case studies, and simulations, attendees will gain a greater appreciation and understanding of how security risks in Europe could evolve, combine, and interact, and the policy responses that will be needed to manage the forces at play.
