The study is open to the public.

From Brexit, to US politics, to China, to climate change, external pressures raise questions about whether – and how – the European Union (EU) can do more to protect its security and promote world peace and security. Dr. Cottey will argue that the debate on the issue within the EU is underpinned by two opposing principles: consensus thinking and governance thinking. This article will discuss how these two principles have worked so far in developing the EU’s Common Security and Defense Policy (CSDP) and discussing how they can play in the future.

Andrew Cottey is Professor and Chair of the EU Jean Monnet in European Political Integration, Department of Government and Politics, University College Cork. He is a European security expert and author of several books, including Security in 21st Century Europe (Palgrave Macmillan), with over 80 newspaper articles, book titles and fact sheets. He is currently the Chair of the Royal Irish Academy Standing Committee on International Affairs and a member of the executive committee of the British American Security Information Council (BASIC).

The UCC-Defense Forces Lecture Series seeks to facilitate a public dialogue on global security challenges, how these issues could affect Ireland and how Ireland can help address regional and global security threats. The workshops were organized in conjunction with the Defense Forces and UCC’s Colleges of Arts, Celtic Studies and Social Sciences and Business and Law.
