Europe and its Neighbourhood 2018

Chatham House, International Crisis Group, Al Sharq Forum, and Institut Montaigne will host the fourth annual conference on Europe and its Neighbourhood: Conflict Prevention and Crisis Management in the 21st Century, focusing on the political, security and societal challenges that Europe’s leaders must address, and how they can do so at a time when the traditional ties and strategic relations within Europe and between Europe and its allies are under increasing strain.

This year’s discussions will bring together perspectives from across Europe and neighbouring regions to discuss:

  • Challenges for decision-making and political leadership in a changing Europe
  • The competition for power and influence in Europe’s neighbourhood
  • Conflict and instability in key regions and Europe’s capacity to address common security challenges.
