From 3-4 June 2019, the EUISS supported the European Security and Defence College (ESDC), the National University of Public Service of Hungary and the EU Agency for Law Enforcement Training with the 14th CSDP high-level course 2018-2019. The course is designed to prepare select senior representatives from EU member states and EU institutions for roles in CSDP and the EU’s crisis management structures. In particular, the EUISS participated in the 4th module of the course and it shared its analysis with participants from the European External Action Service (EEAS), the EU Military Staff (EUMS), CSDP missions and operations and numerous member state representatives.

Initiating the course, Gustav Lindstrom – EUISS Director – delivered a keynote lecture on the EU Global Strategy in a shifting global context. He also delivered a presentation on future trends in CSDP. Florence Gaub – EUISS Deputy Director – focused her presentation on the EU and the MENA region. Senior Analyst Stanislav Secrieru was engaged in a panel discussion on the future of the European Neighbourhood Policy and he analysed the 10-year anniversary of the Eastern Partnership. Finally, Daniel Fiott – Security and Defence Editor – presented his thoughts on future conflict trends and how they might affect CSDP deployments, plus he delivered a lecture on the coherence of EU defence governance.
