THESEUS Summer School 2008
EU’s role in the world – what priorities? Revisiting the European Security Strategy
Brussels 29/6 - 05/07/2008
Applying both an analytical and theory led, as well as a normative approach, the THESEUS Summer School asked what the current role of the EU in the world is and what it should be in the future. Analysis and debate focussed especially on the European Security Strategy of 2003 and the examination of its implementation decided in December 2007, as well as on the provisions of the Lisbon Treaty.
Keynote speakers were Olli Rehn (Member of the European Commission, responsible for enlargement), Jacek Saryusz-Wolski (Member of the European Parliament, Chairman of the Committee on Foreign Affairs), Jamie Shea (Director of Policy Planing in the Private Office of the Secretary General, North Atlantic Treaty Organisation). Jolyon Howorth (University of Yale) accompanied the school as THESEUS Resident Researcher.
