Debating Security Plus: a global online brainstorm
26-28 September 2017
Als Mitglieder von Friends of Europe möchten wir Sie auf dieses einmalige globale online brainstorming event aufmerksam machen:
Debating Security Plus is Friends of Europe’s unique global online security brainstorm. The forum takes a holistic approach to security, bridging the gap between experts and citizens to develop concrete recommendations to global security challenges.

Our recommendations will provide food for thought on the future of European defence as the EU moves forward on the implementation of its Global Strategy among fears of US disengagement from the transatlantic alliance, the renewed nuclear threat from North Korea, the geopolitical impact of the Gulf crisis and continuous pressure on Europe’s security architecture from Russia and Turkey.

Confirmed VIP speakers to date include:
Sam Gulube, South African Secretary of Defence
Jeffrey Sachs, Sustainable Development Goals Advocate and Professor at the Columbia University
Stefano Manservisi, Director General of the European Commission Directorate General for International Cooperation and Development (DEVCO)
General Denis Mercier, Supreme Allied Commander Transformation at NATO
Kirsi Henkriksson, Head of the European Union EUCAP Sahel Niger Mission
Patrick Costello, Head of Division for Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan at the European External Action Service (EEAS)
Rob Wainwright, Director of the European Police Office (EUROPOL)
Fabrice Leggeri, Executive Director of FRONTEX
Marietje Schaake, Member of the European Parliament
Trita Parsi, President of the National Iranian American Council
Pekka Haavisto, President of the European Institute of Peace
