BISA European Security Working Group Call for Papers

Date: 17th and 18th of January, 2019
Location: Newcastle University, Newcastle
Theme: The future of European Security 
The third workshop of the BISA European Security Working Group, which will take place on the 17th and 18th of January 2019, at the University of Newcastle, will focus on the topic of the Future of European Security. The workshop wishes to discuss recent developments in the area of European security broadly understood, as well as the reasons behind these changes and thus what the future of European security might look like. We intend to discuss both internal influences and external ones, including the impact of external actors such as the US, Russia and/or NATO on European security. In particular we are looking for papers in these areas:
*       Theoretical arguments about the (re)conceptualisation of European Security;
*       Future security challenges facing Europe;
*       The interdependence, duplication or competition between security institutions;
*       The triangular interactions between the US, the EU and Russia; 
*       Bilateral and multilateral security cooperation initiatives between European states;
*       The development of PESCO, European Defence Fund and related initiatives;
*       The internal and external dimensions of the Area of Freedom, Security and Justice;
*       Potential synergies and collaborations between the CSDP and internal security agencies;
*       Brexit and its impacts on external and internal European Security;
The coordinators of the group are also particularly happy to announce that the keynote speech will be given by Jamie Shea, the NATO Deputy Assistant Secretary General for Emerging Security Challenges.
