The Europa Research Group is pleased to invite you to our upcoming event:

Europe’s Current Security Challenges

Tuesday 10 March 2015
6pm – 7.30pm

50 George Square | Room G.06

The ongoing crisis in Ukraine, a country on the borders of the European Union, has fast become one of the most prominent threats to European security. Such is the danger that some suggest it to be on a par with international terrorism.

The close proximity of the Ukrainian conflict and the economic and political relations between the EU, Russia and Ukraine raise several important questions: How should we expect the situation in Ukraine to develop in the future? What effects will it have on the rest of the European continent? What can and should the European Union do to address those challenges?

Come along to the discussion to hear the insights of our knowledgeable panel of speakers, bring along your own questions and ideas and join in the debate!
