Shared vision, common action, stronger Europe: Is the implementation of the EU Global Strategy meeting expectations?

27 April 2017

On 27-28 April, the EUISS and the Maltese Presidency of the Council of the EU organised a high-level conference on the EU Global Strategy (EUGS). Following a panel focusing on how the EUGS has driven the EU’s and member states’ foreign policy since June 2016, the conference encouraged debate on the security and defence aspects of the EUGS and the EU’s crisis management strategy for Libya.

Malta’s Minister for Home Affairs and National Security, Carmelo Abela, European Commissioner for Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs, Elżbieta Bieńkowska, and the Chairman of the EU Military Committee, General Mikhail Kostarakos, delivered keynote speeches at the conference.
