An agency of the EU

Books

Books published by the Institute include both in-depth thematic studies and compendiums of EU security-related information, in particular the EUISS Yearbook (YES), an annual compilation providing key documents and statistics in English, French and German.

  • This book is intended to offer interested readers a portrait of how the European Union conducts diplomacy – as well as defence, development and other related policies. It offers an overview of how the EU has evolved as a foreign policy actor, and includes analyses of the main players in the EU system and their interplay, through which it tries to convey both past dynamics and present trends.

  • This volume presents a compilation of memos following the EUISS workshop on the Security and Defence Implementation Plan (SDIP), in which leading experts and analysts outline their preferred level of ambition and priority areas for EU security and defence.

  • Following up on the previously published ‘Defence Matters – EU Key Documents 2013’ and ‘Strategy Matters – EU Key Documents 2003-2014’, this compendium presents the two major documents released by the EEAS in June 2015 and June 2016 as part of the process of strategic reflection leading to the EU Global Strategy (EUGS) on foreign and security policy, elaborated under the aegis of HR/VP Federica Mogherini.

  • The EUISS Yearbook of European Security (YES) 2016 is the Institute’s annual publication compiling key documents and data related to the EU’s external action for the year 2015. YES is an indispensable publication that aims to inform experts, academics, practitioners and, more generally, all those wishing to know more about the EU and security-related matters through the showcasing of crucial facts and figures.

  • The EUISS asked 50 well-known analysts and commentators to give their opinion on the priorities that the forthcoming EU Global Strategy should address and how. The resulting contributions are collectively reproduced in this volume and offer a rich selection of independent views intended to nurture the drafting of the strategy.
