Although security analysts have been concerned with small wars, proxy wars, and counter-terrorism over the past two decades, inter-state rivalry and great-power politics have redrawn the priorities of foreign and defense policies, while also reshaping financial markets and the global business environments.


In light of these challenges and opportunities ahead, this panel discussion will brought together a group of experts, academics, EU officials, and civil society to discuss pragmatic approaches to address the geopolitical obstacles facing Europe. This discussion considered how to strengthen the EU’s competitive advantage on hybrid threats, but also explored avenues for whole-of-government approaches on security.
