About the project
The invasion of Ukraine by Russia has shaken the contemporary international system. Since February 2022, the security strategy for the European Union has been constantly under pressure and questioned by many. The enlargement of NATO, the military budgets increase, and the different ways of tackling conflict in Eastern and Western Europe are reshaping EU policies. Traditionally, Greens have taken an approach to international security issues based on multilateralism, humanitarianism and using the force only as a last resort. The Russian aggression against Ukraine highlights Europe’s weakness in many security-related areas. Today’s debates on this matter revolve around a conservative view of security, militarization, and the role of the state in the latter. Faced with these new challenges, this project aims to explore how the Greens could adopt the necessary tools to understand contemporary conflicts and develop mechanisms to anticipate, respond, and terminate them.
