This Executive Training Seminar will examine in what ways the EU’s Global Strategy can be adapted and improved. It will investigate what a “good” grand strategy is, what issue areas it involves, and what objectives it addresses. Bringing together academic specialists, policymakers, and think tank experts, the three-day seminar offers an in-depth overview of potential grand strategic options for the EU in light of its presumed security interests. We will not only identify the costs, benefits, and risks associated with different strategies, but also discuss their various underlying assumptions and visions for Europe’s role in the world. Seminar topics include grand strategy in theory and practice, potential grand strategic postures toward the US, Russia, and China as well as the role of Europe’s defense capabilities. Through presentations, case studies, and simulations, participants will be able to enhance their understanding of grand strategy and Europe’s core security and economic interests in the world.

Applications are now closed.
