EUISS Annual Conference 2018

06 December 2018

The 2016 EU Global Strategy notes that 'an appropriate level of ambition and strategic autonomy is important for Europe's ability to promote peace and security within and beyond its borders.' This begs the question, what does strategic autonomy imply?

The 2018 EUISS annual conference provided a space to consider multiple views on the concept, bringing together over 130 policymakers, think tankers and academics to debate and discuss the issue.

The opening remarks by HR/VP Mogherini can be viewed here, and the keynote speech by Helga Schmid, Secretary General, European External Action Service (EEAS), can be downloaded below.
