24 September 2008 - 4:00pm to 5:30pm

Chatham House, London


Professor Sven Biscop of Egmont, The Royal Institute for International Relations, Belgium
Dr Jan Joel Andersson, Swedish Institute for International Affairs, Sweden.



The European Security Strategy (ESS) has become an important reference framework for the EU since its inception in 2003. Based on the publication of their recent collaborative volume, Professor Biscop and Dr Andersson will examine how the ESS has shaped EU policy, how it relates to existing policies and whether the objectives of the ESS are sufficient to safeguard EU interests.
