Main Panel 2: European Security Perspective
- Are different versions of new European security architecture presented by the EU, NATO, Russia and Turkey compatible?
- How much transformative potential Europe has to make breakthroughs with frozen conflicts and weak states that are part of it?
- Is the Europe relevant outside of Europe?
- Have Balkan states positioned within new European security architecture?
- What is the role for the Balkans in the new European security architecture: to be a shield or bridge towards other regions? How the proximity of the Greater Middle East is to affect this question?
