European Security After the War in Ukraine


The fourth of four events at the first Athens Security Forum organized by the Institute of International Relations (IDIS). The Forum will focus on the new geopolitical realities and security threats that NATO’s new strategic concept must address.

The war in Ukraine has radically changed the European security landscape. European and Euro-Atlantic institutions face unprecedented challenges as a conflict by conventional and hybrid means is being waged in the heart of the European continent with no end in sight.

The implications of the war for the EU and NATO and the consequences for peace, stability, and security in Greece and the wider region of South East Europe and the Eastern Mediterranean will be the focus of discussions at the international meeting ATHENS SECURITY FORUM organized by IDIS on 24 November in Athens with the participation of leading academics and policy-makers.

Keynote speakers include Peter Altmaier, former Minister of Finance and Energy of Germany; Mikulas Dzurinda, President of the W. Martens Centre and former Prime Minister of Slovakia; Nabil Fahmy, former Foreign Minister of Egypt; Mircea Geoana, NATO Deputy Secretary General; Margaritis Schinas, Vice President of the European Commission, among others.
