Europe, Strategy, Security

The Europe, Strategy, Security (ESS) Programme seeks to understand the political and strategic changes in taking place in Europe and in its regional environment. The Programme’s work focuses on the European Strategic Observatory, preparing studies, seminars and public conferences, and offering education and training in European issues. The Programme has a particular focus on: Europe as a political and strategic force; the psyche, culture and strategic priorities of European countries; strategic and security changes in its regional environment from the Sahel to the Baltic Sea; and approaches to power and strategy.
