Slovak Strategic ForumPlace of issue: Mošovce Date: 22.05.2009
More information on conclusions and recommendations available here (only in Slovak).
The 3rd SSF took place in Mošovce in March 2009 under the topic:
"European Union - A Global Actor?"
In comparison to the previous ones, this time the forum was focused more on the European Union and its security and defence policy. It was the 10th anniversary of the Common Security and Defence Policy that was the cornerstone for the forum. The centre of interest was the European Security Strategy and missions of the EU. The discussion on the revision or completion of the ESS corresponds also with the drafting of the new strategic conception of NATO which will be undoubtedly the primary focus of security experts in the nearest future. Taking into consideration the new 2020 National Security Strategy of Russia, the forum was also dedicated to the examination of relations between the EU and Russia.
