Round Table - Current and future developments in the transatlantic security architecture (in partnership with ACADEM as part of the Paris Defence and Strategy Forum, the Association France-Canada and WIIS-France, and with the support of ENAP NSA, Rubicon and the MINDS program of the Ministry of National Defense).

March 14, 2024

Since 2017, the transatlantic security architecture has undergone many changes. While D. Trump's first term in office had a major impact on it, these repercussions remain "minor" compared with what was triggered by the invasion of Ukraine in 2022. Against this backdrop, which remains highly volatile, the aim of this roundtable is to address the various developments that have taken place in recent months and those that may occur in the short term for the transatlantic security architecture. This round table was organized as part of the Personnalités d'Avenir France-Canada program.

Virtual round table - The consequences of the Russian invasion on German foreign and defense policy: will Berlin become the leading military power in Europe? (in partnership with the Centre for International Security and European Cooperation Studies at Université Grenoble Alpes and the Canadian Centre for German and European Studies at Université de Montréal)

May 9th 2022

Although Germany was criticized for its stance on Ukraine and Russia in the weeks leading up to the Russian invasion, the country has since undergone a significant change, which in many areas represents a real turning point for German defense policy. The most obvious illustration was the Chancellor's speech to the Bundestag on February 27, announcing a sustained increase in the military budget to exceed the 2% of GDP allocated to defense, as well as the creation of a €100 billion restructuring and procurement fund for the Bundeswehr.  At a time when the process of adopting an interministerial foreign policy strategy has just begun, this forthcoming increase in Germany's defense budget - and therefore normally in the Bundeswehr's capabilities - is likely to have some impact on the positions of other major European countries, but also within NATO and the CSDP.

Round table - From European armies towards a European army? The European intervention initiative (in partnership with the Defense Factory)

Paris, January 28, 2022

Created in 2018, the European intervention initiative aims to promote the development of a European strategic culture and to facilitate the engagement of European forces (members of the European Union, NATO or both organizations) in the event of of the need for international intervention. Nearly four years after its launch, what vision do France's partners have for this French initiative? To what extent does this contribute to the objective of providing Europe with a common intervention force, the possible embryo of a European army?
