A fully-fledged defence union for 2025

Foreign policy, Security and Defence
Date: Tuesday, 15 January 2019 19:00 - 21:00

Venue: 3 Rue du Luxembourg  |  City: Brussels

At the State of the Union address on 13 September 2017, European Commission President Juncker called for the creation of a fully-fledged defence Union by 2025. YPFP and Saab are excited to welcome you to our next panel event, which aims to explore the concept of a fully fledged defence Union. We will host a wine reception at the event. This event is open to everyone - but seats are limited!

We will discuss President Juncker’s proposal for a fully fledged defence union with three distinguished speakers, welcoming:

- PSC Ambassador to the Netherlands Joanneke Balfoort

- Arnout Molenaar, Senior Expert on Defence Policy Matters at the European External Action Service (EEAS)

- Daniel Fiott, Defence Policy Analyst at the European Union Institute for Security Studies (EUISS)

We will consider what a fully fledged defence union may look like, what objectives should be reached and what steps lie ahead for the EU, Member States and other stakeholders in reaching those objectives. We will also discuss what this means for the future of the Union in a global context, and for the transatlantic relationship.

This event will draw on the discussions from the YPFP workshop in early September led by Daniel Fiott. These events aim to challenge our expectations, and to consider key defence developments on the EU landscape from different angles as well as their meaning for the future.

Please register to get on the list: https://members.ypfp.org/event-3173996

We are looking forward to seeing you there!
