An agency of the EU

Publications 


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

    This Chaillot Paper examines Russia’s Eurasian project. Is this a new twenty-first century version of the Soviet Union?

It also looks at how the crisis in Ukraine will affect Moscow’s plans, as well as how the EU could interact with this potential rival.

    Alert - No37 - 05 September 2014

    Following a particularly bloody summer, this Alert explores the potential existence of a causal link between rising temperatures and aggressive behaviour in the Arab world. But can the heat alone explain the onset of conflict?
