The Institute was actively involved in the second edition of the Schuman Forum.

On 28 May, the EUISS organised a closed-door meeting with the participation of peace, security and defence policy experts from think tanks and academia from around the world. The event provided experts with an opportunity to preview the key issues on the agenda of the main event of the Forum. It gave the opportunity to share ideas and concrete proposals on how to best strengthen and further develop cooperation in the field of peace, security and defence between the EU, its Member States, and partners.
