The Visegrad Schools of Political Studies and the European Academy of Diplomacy would like to invite you for the conference “The Role of EU and NATO in providing peace and security in Europe“, which will be held at the Faculty of Law and Administration of the Jagiellonian University (Krupinicza 33a) on 13 January 2018.

The event will focus on increasing the understanding among students and young professionals of the importance of the two international organizations – EU and NATO – for the continuous development of the continent in general and Central Europe in particular. The conference will be an occasion to present a report prepared by the Community of Democracies and entitled “Democracy vs. Security: A False Dilemma”. The panel will respond to the following questions:

  • What are the effective long-term security policies that are based on rule of law and other core democratic principles?
  • What kind of democratic strategies can we have for countering terrorism and violent extremism?
  • Finally, how can we expand the democratic peace argument around the world?

The conference is organized in partnership with the Jagiellonian University, Konrad Adenauer Stiftung, NATO, International Visegrad Fund, Community of Democracies and Council of Europe.
