As part of its multi-year program “CFSP and Serbia’s Accession to the EU”, ISAC is organizing its 3rd annual conference on CFSP, with a goal to raise awareness on what is the Common Foreign and Security Policy, as well as highlighting the importance of Serbia’s current and future role within that framework. The conference will take place on June 6 2017, in Hotel Crowne Plaza in Belgrade.
This year, the main focus will be set on the process of implementation of the EU Global Strategy and the set of changes and initiatives in the field of security and defence, such as the Implementation Plan on Security and Defence, the European Defence Action Plan and the European Defence Fund, and the prospects for the creation of a multi speed Europe in that area. And in light of these new security and defence cooperation trends, the conference will look at where does that leave Serbia and its commitments under Chapter 31 – Foreign, Security and Defence Policy and the specific issues that Serbia faces in the accession process within that Chapter.
Also, we are pleased to announce that Mr. Markus Ederer, State Secretary of the Federal Foreign Office of Germany, will give keynote speech at our upcoming conference.
