Changing Concepts of Security and Defence

Chatham House, London

International Security Department, European Security and Defence Forum


This is the inaugural workshop of a newly established European Security and Defence Forum (ESDF) and forms a crucial part of a major new initiative launched by the International Security Programme. The workshop will examine the ways in which security and defence are articulated and understood in academic and theoretical debates, and in government. The workshop will also examine the conceptual/practical debate at the level of international security organizations.

A report of the proceedings will be available. The second workshop of this forum will be held later this year, to be followed by a conference early in 2010.

For more information please contact the European Security and Defence Forum.
