The European Council on Foreign Relations (ECFR) and the Central European University (CEU) cordially invite you to an event on the future of European security in Budapest.

Concerns about the future of NATO and Europe's security have been rising since President Trump took office in January 2017. With constant threats from terrorism to cyber-attacks, a resurgent Russia and the prospect of Brexit, is it time for Europe, 60 years after the Rome treaty was signed, to profoundly rethink its security strategy and construct a new European security package. 

The starting point for the discussion will be the ‘ECFR Flash Scorecard on the future shape of Europe‘ which highlights the attitudes towards the changing security situation in Europe while mapping out the potential for new ideas and coalitions in European foreign and security co-operation. Based on that, the event will discuss challenges and opportunities to cooperation in the areas of security and defence in Europe and specifically the region of Central and Eastern Europe.   

Venue: Room 103, CEU, Nador utca 15, Budapest, Hungary
