This synthesis comes back on the debates which took place on the 8 October 2015, during the sixth edition of the “Ateliers de la Citadelle”, organised by the Mission Lille Eurométropole Défense Sécurité (MLEDS), in partnership with the Jacques Delors Institute, around the theme, “More Crises, More Europe of Defense ”.
This day of debate between experts and insiders on security issues made way for an analysis of the new threats facing Europe and the way in which European security cooperation can respond to these threats, through these three key points:
1. Threats to European security;
2. Pragmatic European integration to respond to the threats;
3. Daring to decide, acting in the long term.
