Transatlantic security cooperation: facing the new challenges

28 June 2003

The Rome conference was the second transatlantic conference organised by the EU Institute for Security Studies in 2003. Coming at a time characterised as 'the deepest transatlantic crisis in the post-World War II era', it focused on the EU and US strategic concepts, EU-NATO cooperation, armaments cooperation, and future trends for the transatlantic link. Represented among the roughly sixty participants were diplomats, think-tank representatives, academics, and defence officials. This conference report summarises the main topics of discussion within each of the four sessions.
