Conferences & Lectures

Throughout the academic year CISS hosts and co-sponsors conferences, workshops and lectures that address the most pressing issues and trends in international security.  This year, on April 2, 2021, CISS hosted a virtual conference that focused on Europe and the Future of Security: EU and NATO Defense and Security Policy for the 21st Century. The conference was open to the public. Our keynote address was offered by Professor Michael McFaul, former Ambassador to Russia. His address was followed by three panels with experts weighing in on (1) the future of the transatlantic security alliance, (2) the refugee crisis, the global pandemic, and human security, and (3) Europe in the face of emergent populism and fascism.
