Russia’s war of aggression against Ukraine has put into question many security assumptions in Europe, such as arms control treaties, the use of tactical nuclear weapons, the dependence on Russian energy or the elasticity of the transatlantic relationship.
Professor Stephanie Hofmann, Director for the ‘Europe in the World’ research area of the Global Governance Programme at the Schuman Centre is organising her annual workshop in October 2023 with a focus on security architectures.
“This workshop offers an opportunity to revisit existing assumptions and theories about European security institutions, (re)examine them in light of current affairs, and think creatively about what is to come”, said Professor Hofmann.
As always, the event seeks to bring together researchers of all career stages to discuss European security architectures in the past, present and future and assess their purpose, how stable and/or adaptable, how effective as well as inclusive they were, are or could be.
Scholars are invited to apply with an abstract of 500 words by 15 June 2023. More information about the requirements and the specific topics can be found in the call for papers.
