On 16 September 2019, Daniel Fiott was invited by the EU’s Politico-Military Group (PMG) to Helsinki to participate in an informal discussion about the future strategic challenges and opportunities facing EU security and defence. At this informal meeting of the PMG, which was organised within the context of the Finnish Presidency of the Council of the EU, Daniel shared his thoughts on the evolving nature of the transatlantic relationship, the meaning of strategic autonomy, how best to achieve complementarity between EU defence initiatives and the future of Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP) military missions and operations. PMG delegates from each of the EU member states engaged in a stimulating strategic debate.
