Main Panel 2: European Security Perspective

15 September 2011, 15:00 - 16:30

Discussion Points:

  • Are different versions of new European security architecture presented by the EU, NATO, Russia and Turkey compatible?
  • How much transformative potential Europe has to make breakthroughs with frozen conflicts and weak states that are part of it?
  • Is the Europe relevant outside of Europe?
  • Have Balkan states positioned within new European security architecture?
  • What is the role for the Balkans in the new European security architecture: to be a shield or bridge towards other regions? How the proximity of the Greater Middle East is to affect this question?
