An agency of the EU


As part of its mission to find a common security culture for the EU, to help develop and project the CFSP, and to enrich Europe’s strategic debate, the Institute regularly releases publications on the topics and regions at the core of its work. 

The Institute’s flagship publication is its series of Chaillot Papers, which are based on focused, in-depth research. The Institute also publishes a Yearbook (YES), Reports, and shorter Briefs and Alerts
