Call for Papers
The EU’s role in the last decades – and especially in the last few years – has evolved from mere economic cooperation between its Member States to an overtly outward projection of shared values and ideas. In particular since the entering into force of the Lisbon Treaty in 2009 the EU has been reviewing substantial aspects of its external action. This evolution, driven by political and military cooperation, has led to the identification of the EU’s potential as a global actor in its own right not only by its own Member States, but also by other major players on the global arena. The elaboration of the European Security Strategy (ESS) represented an unprecedented step in recent history; however, the EU’s potential as a global security actor remains largely unfulfilled more than 10 years after this event.

This interdisciplinary conference aims to understand the trajectories and potential of the EU as a global actor in areas related, but not limited, to security and defense.
