Security and Defense

Old and new global security threats are increasing in our multipolar world. Changing means of warfare, cyber-security, terrorism, uncontrolled migration, growing tensions with Russia and instability in the Middle East compete for attention and resources. On top of that the security and defense cooperation between the UK and EU is currently under review and needs a new post-Brexit architecture. To foster the ongoing efforts for these global security issues, we engage British and European politicians and experts in settings, that provide platforms for exchange as much as in-depth analyses and policy recommendations for the way forward.

The FES London established an annual British-German exchange on pressing issues of defense and security cooperation with The Royal United Services Institute on an annual basis.The FES London also partnered with the Human Security Study Group of the London School of Economics on a wider European Human Security approach to threads of the 21st century.
